Yes it does FLY by too fast.
Do a Start~Program~Accesories and you should see Command Prompt.
When the screen comes up and at the ( mine says )
C:\Documents\Settings\Bob> Here is where you type chkdsk C:
( or any drive letter ) and press enter.
Just keep a space between chkdsk and the drive lettter.
It will then do its things and all info will be on the screen. Again. When done type EXIT to close the Window
As long as you type EXIT there is no probelm with using the Command Prompt.
If you used Win98 and used the MS
DOS Prompt, Command Prompt is the same thing. Just a different name.
