try to reformat your hd and install xp

with norton 2004 and probably 2003 and 2002 you will have to schedule the test to run at boot time so that the prog will have exclusive access to the drive!

I've used Norton Disk Doctor. I'd say it's a bad prog! It messed my system more whenever I used it. Instead, use jv16 Powertools.

anything with name norton end-users should avoid all the time. i would recommend you get HDD Regenerator. If you need a link for the proggy pm me ill give you a link..

"try to reformat your hd and install xp" wow thanks for the useless information

Norton Disk Doctor sucks, that jv16 powertools works pretty good for me.

Anything with norton on it, except Ghost and Speed Disk (IMO), really suck.

norton programs truely truely suck... But the bad thing is once u uninstall them they leave more problems than ever... for example, any 'norton protected' files on your system are unrecognised by windows... i.e. the space they take up is...well.... gone:)
I had over 30 gigs missing hdd space which was 'protected' by norton after uninstalling it... had to friggin reinstall the bastard prog

symantec(excluding ghost)=cocknockers
