I Think I'm having a parameter problem of some sort. I Have A P3 801 Mhz, Award bios, & 2 Hard drives: C= WDC 20 GB,
D= Quantum 10GB. My OS is MS Windows XP Pro 5.01.2600 SP2. Both drives are NTFS.

The problems I'm having are:

1. When I try to Defragment the C Drive it Says Disk Defragmenter has detected that chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: C Please Run chkdsk /F.
No mater how many times I run chkdsk it doesn't help.

2. Every time I boot up windows it runs chkdsk.

3. Several of my programs say that they are corrupt while in use. Example: Spybot, AVG anti-root, Easy Cleaner, Etc
I have Reinstalled all that are affected without change.

4. CWShredder: comes up with CWS.hiddenDll & CWS.Jksearch Were removed. However, every time I run a scan it says
the same thing.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it

CHKDSK that insists on running every time you boot the system without your asking it to is often a sign of a hard drive that's starting to fail. Other symptoms are files that become corrupt in normal use yet become fixed after CHKDSK has ran.
