Screensaver and Defrag Incompatibility

Question: I have a windows 95 computer that I cannot run a defrag or scandisk on.I cannot disable screensaver through control panel or right clicking on the desktop "when I do nothing happens when I click properties".I would also like to see hidden files and folders to delete the applog files so I can defrag.It will not even do either in safe mode.I've already tried the task manager to shut down everything.

Answer: Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the task list and shut down everything except Explorer and Systray. Now run the defrag.
