Try starting up in "safe mode". after the 1st initial screen where it counts your memory stuff, hit your F8 key, and get to your menu. pick safe mode from the menu. When u get into windows, it might look funny, but that's ok.

run scandisk and defrag from safe mode. there is something running in the backround while it is trying to scan, so it runs out of memory. if you have a lot of icons down by your clock, that could be why. you need to remove some of them.

at least you should be able to get thru scan disk and defrag. If you go into the settings, you can tell it not to do a surface scan also.

Make sure that when you shut down your computer you go thru the start menu, start then shut down. wait for it to finish and then click your button (if you have to).
