yes,my computer starts up.but when i try to search in files and folders it did nothing.but i found out that was becuase of a pop ad stopper i had running.but it still wont do a complete defrag.i am running xp.
Try defragging when booting on safe mode,
Defragmentation of a H.D. requires that no program
of any kind is performing read/write operations on the hard drive.
That's why XP asks you to do it next time the machine boots.
Say yes to that message, and next time your PC boots,
defrag will start.
I f that doesn't work,
we'll need to know what kind of error message (if any) you are getting.
