In Windows XP Home edition.. when I try to run disk defragmenter, I get the
message "Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on
the volume :( C:) . Please run ChkDsk /f."

The only option I'm presented with is to click OK, I do that and nothing
happens. How do I get my Defragmenter to run again.. HELP!

Does restarting your computer resolve the problem?

Thanks.. tried that but all I got was the following message; "TYPE OF FILE
SYSTEM IS NTFS. CANNOT LOCK CURRENT DRIVE.

Also got the message; "CHKDSK CANNOT RUN BECAUSE THE VOLUME ISIN USE BY
ANOTHER PROCESS. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SCHEDULE THIS VOLUME TO BE CHECKED NEXT
TIME THE SYSTEM RESTARTS? (Y/N)" I selected "Y" and restarted my pc... it
still didn't work!

How long has this problem existed? What other Disk Utilities are you /
have you been using? McAfee / Norton other?

Hi Gerry, the problem started yesterday.. I haven't used any other utilities
except for WinSpeedup which is something I've been using for months. I don't
have any other disk utilities on my pc.. at least, none I'm aware of!
