    Hello all,

    I am trying to run scandisk on a friend's computer in safe mode. He has Windows ME.
    It constantly restarts without finishing.
    Could this be spyware or a virus? I'm in the process of downloading spybot s+d, BTW.

    Regards,
    Douglas

    dear Douglas, try running scandisk after booting from a floppy or CD. you can make this disk slave and run scandisk from a master drive. make sure in all cases the floppy/CD/HDD is clean from viruses. also checkout the start-up list of his system. you can do it from START>RUN>MSCONFIG>STARTUP.

    Many thanks. I'll download a free av as soon as spybot is done downloading. (My friend doesn't run an antivrus :rolleyes: ).

    Best Regards,
    Douglas

    dear Douglas, i'm amazed how your friend managed to run that OS without an AV. while you're at it try downloading SpywareBlaster from www.javacoolsoftware.com and a2 from www.a-2.org
