    windows98se scandisk

    I am having a problem with windows scandisk I have it set to run every time the computer boots up. It will run 30 seconds or so and then it starts over and over and over. I checked the details and it said c: is too busy it has started 10 times. I have no idea what that means.Help please

    Everytime something changes on your C drive, Scandisk starts over and will stop after 10 attempts. This means you have some activity going on - stop ALL programs including any virus scanning.
    Alternatively, boot to DOS mode at start up and type
    scandisk
    from the command prompt. You'll probably find that much faster anyway.
