"Cannot open volume for direct access"?

That is the error I get now when trying to use error-checking in XP. Worked fine in the past. Goes to the blue screen on reboot like it is going to check for errors, but gives that message and continues to boot into desktop. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

If you are running the current Zone Alarm (version 5.0), un-install it and install a older version.

Norton can also be causing a conflict with ZA.
