Q

ScanDisk keeps restarting

No matter what I do, I cannot defrag. Every time I try, ScanDisk keeps restarting. Can you help?
Sounds like a hard disk problem. Maybe some clusters are defective -- which is very likely, if ScanDisk keeps restarting. If you have a second hard disk, try to defrag it. If this works, your defragger is okay. Otherwise, there should be an error message to point you to the source of the problem.
