Need chkdsk to run and repair or delete bad sectors on restart, but it's not working. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried 5 times to run chkdsk with /f option from CM propt, thn tried rom My Couter-did not work. Tried 5 times.  Restarted 5 times to no avail.  Tried chkdsk also chkntfs with /c option before restart.   Do I need to disconnect my security software?

    Have XP Pro with SP3 on a Dell laptop latude d620 wth dual core Centrino cpu -2gb RAM, 60 GB hard drive

    Can't defrag until I run chkdsk. 

    Can't clean out registry either until I run chkdsk.

    Chkdsk is running now only in read mode.

    Have Norton Securty Suite.  Symantec tried, I tri many times to clen up the registry--i just lcoks up after 66% completion.

    I tried to delete corrupt files in bad sector--did not work.
