Default ScanDisk in Safe Mode

Hi Group!

Having a problem running ScanDisk in Safe Mode for the past few times.

Copy & paste of last log info (same error message as the other times):
*******************

Microsoft ScanDisk for Windows

NOTE: If you use an MS-DOS program to view this file, some of the characters
may appear incorrectly. Use a Windows program such as Notepad instead.

Log file generated at 21:11 on 3/29/2010.

ScanDisk used the following options:
Thorough test
Check dates and times
Automatically fix errors

Drive Local Disk (C contained the following errors:
Restarted 10 times because another program wrote to this disk.


ScanDisk was canceled.

-------------------
Any ideas why this would happen in SAFE MODE???

Obviously nothing should be writing to disc in SM. Give it the three finger
salute and see if you can shut off anything that's running. You can also run
scandisc in DOS.

Well you can - as Corday intimated - find out what is running. Or you can
just get ScanDefrag, that was written for precisely this issue and is still
available from Blue Orb Software and Bill Blanton's sites and still supports
Win Me (it would be a bit weird if it didn't, of course). Google
'ScanDefrag', download it and use that.

Hello:

I also found ScanDefrag to be a much better approach to running ScanDisk and
Defragmenter than running them under Safe Mode.

See http://www.blueorbsoft.com/scandefrag/ .

Cheers,
Jerry
