Hi Everybody,
Need a little help with an HP laptop (Pavilion dv10000).
The computer works just fine EXCEPT when I run ERROR-CHECKING, It won't complete the check through number 5 (checking free space). It gets to 5% and won't go any farther. I have to do a hard shutdown in order to boot Windows. It defrags OK and everything else functions normally. I run McAfee virus scan, Spysweeper 5.2, SpyBot, and PConPoint on the machine.

Thanks, Dave

I wouldn't worry about it Dave, because about every 6 months I reclone my harddrives with a fresh copy of win xp. After a few months of computing it is recommended and very useful just to backup everything and then reformat your harddrive. As long as everything is functioning correctly.

Also check my sig for some great antivirus software. :whistling:

Sorry I can't be more useful on your error checking problem
