Well, sort of.
I'm having an interesting dilema with Check Disk that I'm hoping
someone can solve for me.
While operating in normal mode, I went into the Check Disk utility
and selected both option boxes. When I clicked OK, I got the following message:
The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs
exclusive access to some windows files on the disk. These files can be accesed
only by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur
the next time you restart your computer?
I clicked yes, and restarted. Upon re-boot, I get another real short message saying
that C could not be accessed and that the check could not be completed. So I just
blew it off.
Well now, on every start-up or restart, it's still trying to perform the check.
So, just for grins and giggles, I booted into safe mode (or atleast attempted to).
Now, when attempting safe mode, the computer freezes up during the driver list load.
It never makes it fully into safe mode.
A. How do I stop Check Disk from attempting the check, or
B. How do I make it finish the check so it stops attempting
Side note: System restore points were turned off, so that's not an option.
