    hey,
    some files of my c:\ drive has been corrupted.(fidbox.dat)
    and on every restarts it asks for check disk but it stops at step 2(verifying indexes) at zero percent.. :cry:
    and if a pen drive is inserted in the usb port then my keyboard doesn't work so, i cant even cancel the disk check without removing the pen drive.
    and when i try to check disk using chkdsk command it doesn't work it says
    "error found . check disk cannot continue in read only mode" and also never goes above zero percent in stage 2....
    help me .
    i have windows xp with sp3

    a> Why do u keep USB drives plugged in and reboot? If its having problem, remove and reboot. I don't think its an issue.

    b>What is the size of ur C drive? chkdsk may take time depending on the size of teh drive and contents of it.
    Again, stage 2 generally takes time. Keep it as it is as long as it wants to take. Its better u run chckdsk once full.

    c>chckdsk can't operate on C (supposing its where ur OS is) as it needs to unmount any held files which is not possible while booted in OS.
    But, it would work perfectly on other drives u have. Try that. U don't (may not) need to reboot to run chckdsk in those drives.

    It happened to me once, mine got stuck at scanning files,
    one day I decided to keep it going, after 10 minutes are so, it started to scan, the entire scan took around 40+ minutes.
    Try doing that.
