i have been trying to defrag my c drive and what happens is that it stops after 10 % shows i open it to show the detail and there behind the masses of little squares or modules there is a bulge moving around as if trying to get out like something pushing from inside and it moves when i click the mouse to move up it goes,any ideas how to zap it.

What OS are you using? I had this problem with win98 and the solution was to press control/alt/delete to bring up task manager, and then stop all process except (I think) explorer - and then the defragging could continue. If I've got that wrong I'm sure someone will correct me. Of course, the alternative answer might be that your pc is possessed ;)

... only joking - I'm sure the pc isn't possessed! Just checked and my advice re win98 is correct :))

I think you have to leave explorer running and systray.Another way is to defrag in safe mode.

Or alternatively get a real defragger like Diskeeper instead of Microsoft's pretend one.
