I have been trying to help my friend with his computer. I did check disk on
it and it went fine. I went to do defrag and it says that "disk defragmenter
has detected that chkdsk is scheduled to run on Volume; (C:)  please run
chkdsk /f."
Have checked Scheduled Tasks and checkdisk is not listed on schedule.
How can I get defrag to run and get checkdisk to let defrag to run?

Reboot the computer. Allow chkdsk to run. Reboot again. Run the
defragmenting program.

Navigate to this key in your registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session
Manager.
change the BootExecute to read autocheck autochk*.

That should fix it.
