Defrag Error

P: n/a
I have XP Home Edition. About a month ago I tried to defag my hard drive. I
had just cleared out all temp files, etc and wanted to defrag which I had
been doing about once a month.

A gray dialogue box popped up with the following message. "Detected that
chkdsk is scheduled to run on volume: (c). Please run chkdsk/f.

I did try to use the start button, enter "run" and typed in run chkdsk/f.
This did not do anything.

Can anyone out there tell me what is wrong?

Thanks very much for any insight.

Yes. Ask your question in a group dedicated to XP if you want answers. This
is a .NET programming group.

To find a XP group:

Select your language from the Tree View on the left, then scroll down to
Windows. In the Windows category, open Windows XP and find an applicable
group there.
