Hello, I'm running Windows 2000 professional and noticed
my computer was running slow, so I decided to run "Disk
Defragmenter" but the computer locked up. And now
everytime I start my computer I'm getting the "CHKDSK"
black screen which gives me 10 seconds to abort chkdsk and
finish the bootup process but when I let "Chkdsk" run it
goes through the (3) step process and doesn't report any
errors, everything checks out OK. But is just stays on
that screen and doesn't do anything. So now it won't let
me run "Disk Defragmenter" and tells me to run "chkdsk /f"
but then I come up with this message:
THE TYPE OF FILE TYPE IS NTFS.
CANNOT LOCK CURRENT DRIVE.
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? (Y/N)

I just need help with fixing this problem any help would
be greatly appreciated, thanks.

If you get an error something to the effect "cannot open volume for direct
access" There is some system/boot start device that is reading/writing to
the drive before chkdsk can get a lock on the drive. Some anti-virus
applications do this.

You can also run
chkdsk /r
from the recovery console command line. (/r implies /f and /p)

To start the Recovery Console, start the computer from the Windows 2000
Setup CD or the Windows 2000 Setup floppy disks. If you do not have Setup
floppy disks and your computer cannot start from the Windows 2000 Setup CD,
use another Windows 2000-based computer to create the Setup floppy disks.
Press ENTER at the "Setup Notification" screen. Press R to repair a Windows
2000 installation, and then press C to use the Recovery Console. The
Recovery Console then prompts you for the administrator password. If you do
not have the correct password, Recovery Console does not allow access to the
computer. If an incorrect password is entered three times, the Recovery
Console quits and restarts the computer. Once the password has been
validated, you have full access to the Recovery Console, but limited access
to the hard disk. You can only access the following folders on your
computer: %systemroot% and %windir%
