  Hi Barry,

  Yes.  Did I not put it in?  Sorry about that.  CHKDSK is the command line
  program, followed by a space, followed by a slash (/), for those without
  punctuation, followed by an F.

  Hope this is clear.

  All the best

  Is there supposed to be a space between the chkdsk and the /f?

    Hi Sandra,

    Do the following:-

    1.  Go to the run menu, and instead of Scandisk, type the following line:-

    chkdsk /f

    The /f is important, because it stands for Fix.  The computer will say
    something like "Current drive is locked" and will ask you if you want to
    check the disk on the next startup.

    2.  Answer with a Y and an enter to this question.  The check disk program
    will simply close.  Now restart your computer.  It will take longer to
    start, because it will run a chkdsk before it restarts.

    That should do it.

    All the best

    Hi all,
    Can anyone tell me the XP equivalent of the scandisk in Windows 98?  For
    some reason, every time I try to go to the control panel, my machine
  crashes
    and I thought I'd check it out to see if there were any errors.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Cheers,
    Sandra.
