|2 quick questions: Im a new XP user here.i know that it was recommended to run windows defrag in safe mode all the older windows versions|
( 95,98,ME-i found this out the hard way)
but i have a new pc with WINDOWS XP,
i use antivirus+ firewall programs in memory in normal mode
should i get into safe mode before running windows defrag so nothing would write to the hard drive and cause errors or freezing up?
and should i run scandisk before running defrag and should i run scandisk in safe mode as well like my older windows versions or is normal mode ok in XP??
the reason i ask is becuase i always had scandisk problems becuase of my antivirus and other programs and normal mode windows ME
