I am running XP Home edition on a 733 Pentium. Every now and then it decides that the shut down was incorrect and runs "Scandisk".

I have been wanting to run "Scandisk" before I run "Defrag" but I cannot find it? I have tried finding it by using search for a file, but no success.

Please can somebody point me in the right direction

I get to it by going to the Start button then My Computer.
Then right click the drive you want to scan and select Properties.
The select the tools tab
Its the top option

I have copied and pasted the below, see if that helps

The program ScanDisk checks for errors. Always run ScanDisk before running the Defragmenter.

ScanDisk in Microsoft(R) Windows 2000 and XP
Click "Start", then open "My Computer"
Right-click on the "hard drive's icon" (usually C:\)
Click "Properties", and then click the "Tools" tab
Click "Check Now"
Place checkmarks in all "checkboxes"
Click "Start"
Click "Yes" to schedule a full disk scan when the computer is restarted
Restart the computer.
The disk scan will take a while to complete
