What are the symptoms? Does scandisk just come up and sit there after you click on start, what does it do, need more info.

You may need to disable your broadband connection, your firewall, and your ad blockers as one of these -- I don't remember which one -- uses your hard drive all the time. I had the same problem until someone in one of these forums gave me the same advice.

You must provide usefull info before an intelligent answer can be given. I can assume that your using Windows 98 or ME because 2000 and XP do not have Scandisk, but saying "I've tried everything" and not telling us what actually happens when you try to run these utilites is not much to go by.

windows 98/SE

You got to click on restart then tap the F-5 key till you see your way to safemode there Is no other way to complete a defrag outside of safemode
that Is If you got windows 98/SE.Then when your In safemode you might have to go Into control panel and right click the C drive to get properties
then click tools there you should be able to do both scandisk and defrag
you will have to baby sit the whole procedure threw thou cause I don't think you can schedule anything In safemode
