U R G E N T ! Plse

I would like to have task scheduler auto-execute my Diskdfrag and Scandisk.
I've tried everything but it either still nags me or does not run at all.

a)I use "C:\WINDOWS\SCANDSKW.EXE /a /n" to have Scandisk execute but it does not start.

b)I would like to have Defrag to execute aswell without nagging me.

PS. I use WIN 95

I've done what you said on the WIN98 PC and it fixed my one problem, though I'm still stuck with the same problem on the WIN95 PC

beneke, currently I do not have any computers using win95.

Can you find similar in applying the theories as we have solved in win98?

Perhaps, you tell me more about what you've found in win95 and let me comprehend your environment.
CompTIA Security+

beneke, have you tried making a batch file?

IT wouldn't auto-execute per se, but you could put it on desktop and run it easily
    Win95 does not have the maintenance wizard that Win98 provides.  To achieve something similar, you'll need a 3rd party program such as the Noron Utilities from Semantec.
If this question is so urgent, why are you only offering 10 points?

C:\WINDOWS\SCANDSKW.EXE /a /n" will do
it and NOT "/n /a"
