I have a P111, 733, running Windows ME. I have been attempting to run the standard windows defragmentation program from system tools, and am finding that after quite a period of time (maybe 1/2 hr) the percentage of the drive defragmented is still 0%. Does this mean this system tool is not working. I know this can normally take some time, but this seems over the top
Your comments would be appreciated

You need to turn off virus scanners and any other programs that may be running in the background
You may also have more success by running defrag with windows in Safe Mode

Search for a tool called "PowerDefrag" and run that - it's a little marvel.
