When I run the built in defragmenter or Defraggler my computer freezes up after about five minutes, leaving only my cursor to move around and I have to hard restart.
When I run disk check and only tick "automatically fix file system errors" and restart, it performs the operation without a problem. But if I tick "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" it freezes at the beginning of stage 4.
I was also having trouble running any other scanning programs such as antivirus, system file checker, disk check, and the defragmenter. I found two corrupt files in the dllcache which froze my computer if I so much as right clicked on them. I assumed this was the problem causing the freezes whenever any of the previous programs tried to access those files. I finally replaced them with system file checker, and I can now click on and virus-scan those files. However the problem with defragmenting and the disk check persists. W
