    would anyone have information regarding the sytem tools,
    disk defragmenter, and scan disk. It still will not run
    although I have closed all my programs, etc... It keeps
    going back to 0% accomplished. Is there a way to fix it?
    The scan disk system tool does the same thing.
    Thank you!

    Go to Start > Run and type: CMD , and hit enter. In the resulting
    Command Prompt window, type: SFC /SCANNOW , and hit enter.
    You may be prompted to insert your Windows CD in the CD Drive.

    SFC = System File Checker. SFC will scan your system and replace missing
    or damaged XP system files with the correct version.

    Afterward, perform a "tune-up":

    1. Perform a DISK CLEANUP:
    (Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup)

    2. Go to Start > Run and type: CMD , and hit enter. In the Command
    Prompt window type: CHKDSK /F , and hit enter, answer "yes" and
    reboot your computer.

    3. Afterward, perform a DEFRAG of your hard drive.

    (WIN98? XP?....)

    One possible cure
    Kill the power to the PC (Ie cause an illegal shutdown)
    (The resulting scandisk does not require windows to be
    loaded and may complete ....or give some new info)
