There is no "scandisk" in WinXP. If you ugraded to WinXP from another OS that used
scanduisk, delete it.
Instead, do the following...
Dump the contents of the IE Temporary Internet Folder cache (TIF)
start --> settings --> control panel --> internet options --> delete files
Open a Command Prompt.
In the Command Prompt type the following...
CHKDSK C: /F
If it replies..
"Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.
Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?
Choose - Y
Reboot the PC.
A full Check Disk will want to be performed, allow it.
