neighbors have an XP system. They load alot of video games and every tool bar when it's offered and other junk. Their available space is 760 MB and the capacity is 141 gig. So, they have under 1% free.
I removed a couple large programs to get to the levels shown above.
I'm trying to do a defrag.
When the system bootsup there is a message that C: needs to be checked.
ok > CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3).
When it gets to 94% of stage 1 here comes this message:
file record segment 156104 is unreadable.
And the process of verifying files seems to stop.
Reboot into safe mode and attempt to defrag gets an error: saying that CHKDSK/f. is using C: or running in C:, etc. not sure, but that file is preventing a defrag.
start > run > chkdsk/f. > no file found
what needs to be done to get a defrag done and as I added up alot of the programs on the system, I did not count anything close to 141 gigs.
What else is taking up space?
also, they have "registry booster" on their system and they are the only ones who use the computer but they deny putting that on their computer. Is that a needed program or junk?
