    This has happend under Win98 and XP Pro. When i do a full scan of a partition, the scan window just disapears and the scan stops. The scan history doesn't show the scan ever took place either. I can't figure out whats going on. I thought it was that my 900 megs of freespace on C: was being taken up but i've watched the freespace and it will still stop even if it doesn't run out. Any ideas?

    I thought about that, but i don't think that could be the problem because when i finally decided to upgrade to XP i formated C: and the updates, firewall and antivirus were the first things i installed, and i ran the AV software almost immediately to see if it picked up anything. Those links certainly wouldn't hurt though... i'll give them a try, thanks :)

    when you did the updates, did you patch offline or use windows update? the last computer i patched online was hit three times in the first six minutes. :hsugh:
