...has the drive locked.

when I was finally able to get chkdsk to run in safe mode I got:

"Truncating badly linked attribute records from file record segment 53267

C:\found.001 is corrupt and unreadable

recovering lost files.

an unspecified error has occurred"

I did manage to fine file0001.chk and delete it.

I also uninstalled any programs I've recently installed.

I ended (in task manager) as many processes as I could and STILL can't run speed disk.

I just get back to the same 'ol UNABLE TO ACCESS DRIVE C: etc.

I have WIN XP home edition sp2 i run Norton Internet Security 2005 and Norton Systemworks 2005, spyware doctor, adaware, and a couple of registry editor cleaners and a bugfixer.

I suspect you have a hard drive on the verge of failing. I would download and burn an image of Digtal Dolly to CD\DVD. It has the S.M.A.R.T. Drive Utility which should be able to tell you if you are about to have a drive failure.

Thanks, that probably would have saved me a big headache. but it's too late now.

i wish there was some kind of malicious crap cleaner i could put on a 1.44 floppy and clean the thing up

i think it's a nasty bug

Because that at least seems like something I could deal with. If the hard drive is dead...then there's nothing I can do about that. It's the lease of two awful alternatives. I think I will have to send it to a place that charges 300 bucks to get stuff off it. I have to recreate all the stupid things I did, on paper, so they know what the last few days were like before it finally decided it was DONE.

Cheers, this is a good forum, I just didn't do anything fast enough. I did waste good money on the panda software...::sigh::
