Boot the PC, keep tapping F8 until you get options, select safe mode, run defragmenter but remove the tick for check drive for errors, if it runs, select scan disc after that, if it runs, select maintenance wizard afterwards

Did you boot to safe mode, click start, programmes, accessories, system tools to run them from there

I just ran them in safe mode on a 98SE PC
