Default Problems with Disk Scan in XP

Hello, I've been trying to perform scan disk on Windows XP on my C:\

When it finishes the process, it says "Windows is unable to complete the process".

Why is it happening? Any explanations? Thanks for your time.

Is the scan disk being performed while you're logged on to Windows XP?

If so, then try performing a scan disk through the Windows Recovery console (by booting into the Windows Setup Disc, going into the Recovery Console and typing chkdsk x: where x: is the Windows drive) or in Safe Mode.
