View Full Version : Cannot stop disk write



12-11-2001, 08:02 AM
Hi
I cannot run Norton disk doctor right through because it keeps resetting due to disk write . The same thing happens during defrag.
I tried pressing Ctrl ,Alt ,Del and then closing down programs untill almost nothing was left but still no stopping reset.
Only solution was run in safe mode . But Nortons will only run in normal so had to defrag with win defrag during safe mode.
Any idea's please
