Scandisk & Real Player

Asustek / P4S800MX

Specs: WinMe, 0.7GHz/768Mb
When I first installed Real Player v10.5 in WinMe, it used to slow down my interneting because it wanted to keep going on-line. NO updates are relevant to WinMe, so I disabled that 'seeking to update' by deleting \First Time\ and UNticking TkBellExe in MSConfig's StartUp tab. Now something keeps trying to 'write to the disc' while I'm doing a Scandisk, and since everything else has been closed-down/disabled before I start a Scandisk, I suspect that it is Real Player that is interrupting Scandisk. What else can I disable, or what Registry Tweak might solve this ?

Real Player is spyware, get rid of it. If you feel you need it for some reason, install Real Alternative instead:

Other than that, try running scandisk from safe mode.

A screensaver coming on or just the OS writing to the swap file can restart scandisk and defrag.
