Defrag causes firewall error

  ACOLYTE 16:19 20 Nov 2005

Every time i defrag the pc my firewall has an error(sygate)Smc.exe version faulting module ntdll.dll version 5.1.2600.2180,then i get the option to send a report i dont and close the box defrag carries on as normal but my firewall goes off and i have to reboot to enable it again,any ideas?
This is where the event ID leads me but i have no idea what it means click here
it also says it doesnt apply to XP home,but thats where i get sent.

Defrag in safemode or close your firewall,i close fiewall and anti-virus when i defrag.

That's one way i suppose,but i shouldn't have to close programs to defrag, or defrag in safe mode.
I can be doing tasks on the pc when it starts to defrag,usually it just defrags on thats the last i hear of it,but just lately i have been getting the firewall error.

Seems this was caused becasuse the other pc i am networked to wasnt turned on,when it is sygate doesnt have an error,wierd but sorted))
