Windows XP Home. Defrag selection results in "MMC cannot open the file C:\WINDOWS\system32dfrg.msc". The file is there, I do have administrator's rights, and the last time I used it about 10 days ago there was no problem. Has anyone else experienced this fault?
Brundle - Thank you for your response. Unable to locate the Windows system file you mention - apparently it doesn't exist on my machine. The only one which does is dfrg.msc on system 32 and that doesn't help at all.
Thank you again, also Buteman. I had in fact opened the hidden files but still no sign of the file needed. In the meantime I have tried both Auslogic Disk Defrag and Piriform Defraggler. The former very fast but did not seem to do a thorough job as Piriform uncovered another large number of fragmented files which it took well over an hour to process (much slower than the MS version). I think I will stick with Piriform which although it doesn't resolve the original problem does enable defragmentation to take place. This query therefore remains open in case any other solutions turn up.
