If you've loaded too many files into memory it refuses to run. You have to run it immediately on boot up. Try that and let us know. You don't need to run it often, only if you have indications of a problem.

If it doesn't work during startup, try running Check disk in safe mode.

It dose work from safe mode but this is inconvent, it there a DOS command the will reboot my computer in to safe mode? I am trying to get it to run from a batch file, I can't do it from any method. It is probley as segested too many files in memory, 218MB at start up mainly because of norton useing up heaps of it. One of you said that it is only need if you have problems, the idea is to prevert all problems.
