Unfortunately Rodell,this is a pisser.I would suggest one thing first,start in safe
mode and scandisk.Secondly & more potentially helpful;use a boot disk to boot
into DOS.You know;"start without CD support",wait for DOS prompt;At "A" type
:Scandisk/all,after that try (same preamble) :Scanreg/fix One of these
might get a result.Something is wrong with the HDD,or Windows is having a
problem because bad sectors are detected-I've never known 98 se to refuse to
scan unless that was the case.Scanning in Dos is faster and more effective at repairing sectors,tick the auto repair box next time(after the successful first scan).
