When I attempt to defrag i gets to 2% and then goes back to 0.I have set the screensaver for 30 minutes,so it is not the restarting after clearing the screensaver.

Thanx

Follow Susan's advice, 7 lines down. A lot of other postings on this as well, but the majority are on the same lines - do it in safe mode.
And use the ME Version.

Reboot into safe mode and run both your scandisk and defrag from there. To get into Safe Mode restart and as the computer starts to boot up, start clicking the F8 key (exact key may vary between systems but F8 is the common one), you will be offered several options, select Start in Safe Mode. Upon finishing the scandisk and defrag restart back into normal windows

although defrag in safe mode will temp fix the problem, it
can also be done by shutting down a few programs. From CTL
ALT DEL close everything except systray and explorer.
Also turn off screensaver.
Also win95 defrag doesn't like Mcaffee a/v, so if you have that, disable it for duration of defrag.
