A friend of mine running on 98se (Until Christmas) still, is trying to run Scandisc.....it gets halfway through and then starts again and again etc., etc.,.....because of programme 'Running in the background'....she has no Screensaver and all AVs and Firewall etc., are turned off!!...for the moment. Obviously it could be run in Safe Mode with possible success....but what she wants to know is, How do you find which programme is running in the background??.... I suggested she right click the Taskbar and look in Task Manager but she says there are 'Loads' of programmes there and which would be the offending programme..... Any ideas please?.... Cochise.
