Disk Defragmenter Has Detected Chkdsk is scheduled on the volume (c:).
Please Run Chkdsk /f.
When I Run This I get:
Chkdsk cannot be run because it is being used by another process. Would you like to schedule this item to be checked the next time the system restarts (Y/N).
I type Y and then I hit enter and restart my computer but it still won’t work.
I then tried the steps of help suggested by wannabee 1 in several posts.
The query for C: did come back as dirty.
However I then get:
Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS
Cannot open volume for direct access
Windows has finished checking the disk
I don’t have Spyware Doctor or ZoneAlarm.
I use Norton Internet Security and AOL 9.0 (I did not install anything "extra" from AOL) I have snail-paced dialup.
My Computer is a Sony Vaio PCV-RX752 - their help & support so far leaves much to be desired. They tell me to use my Setup Disk to get a Recovery Console, but I don't have any disk marked "Setup" I have 2 Application Recovery CD's and 3 System Recovery CD's. Neither Disks 1 of those has gotten me any Recovery Console. I get an error message on the System Recovery CD, which I forgot to write down, but says something like it can't continue because of partitions and have to reboot. Sorry I didn't copy it all down.
