The type of the filesystem is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk can not run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>

I got the same message as before:

The type of the filesystem is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk can not run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>

Should I say yes and restart?

This morning I was able to restart in safe mode, I ran the chkdsk /f /r command and got the same message I normally get-

The type of the filesystem is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk can not run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>

After typing yes and restarting my computer locked up three times before I could get it to boot normally.

Is there a way to correct this problem using other software such as Norton System Check or something along those lines?
