checking file system on C:
CHKDSK is is stuck on stage 2 of 3 with 0% completed> I am using xp PRO with latest SP and dual core intel with wester nterabyrte hd about 2 months old. Nothing out of ordinary. Just a routine maintanence I do once a month. Althought yesterday my computer froze so I had to push power button with 3 programs open. Notihing else would work to close so I know this will cause slow chkdsk.
Can I reboot into safe mode and try last config that worked or???
What to do? It has been over 30 minutes so far in stage 2
I am afraid opowering down wil make worse. How long should I wait ?
