When I attempt maintenance, all is well until defragging starts. The process keeps restarting at about 10% completion, when it goes back to the beginning. This continues for hours until I enter 'Stop'. Maintenance formerly took only a couple of hours.

Turn off everything in the task bar especialy anti-virus programs . Also hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and end task anything that is not neccessary, don't know your operating system, not Explorer or systray.

...and also disable your screen saver if it's running in the background:

Right-click a blank area on desk top > Properties > Screen Saver Tab > choose 'None' > Apply/Okay

Even better, do the defrag from 'Safe' mode :)

Disable your screen saver if you have one and do your defrags or scandisk in SafeMode. That should in most instances cure the problem.
