    Default Disk Defragmenter

    Hi there,
    Recently, disk defragmenter stopped working in my laptop. It is an HP Pavilion ZE 5170 with Windows XP. About that time I uninstalled a couple of programs and I suspect this may have upset a file. Even when I installed the PC world Diskkeeper Lite, defragmenter still did not operate.
    Can anyone suggest a fix and how to go about it.

    Thanks --- Trevor A.

    Might be quicker and better to just use another one

    Windows defrag is slow and there are plenty of better (free) ones to do the job

    Here's one - it's only 1 and a half megs

    Defragging on safe mode might help, or turning off background programs as explained here...

    Install the full (still trial though) version of Diskeeper and see if it makes a difference:

    And so what actually happens when you try and open your defragmenter?
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.
