defragment tool missing

I have windows xp pro and when I try to defrag it comes up with a message saying, "snap in creation failed" with a big red cross by the side, can anyone help?

hi andy, thanks for your response, I have added a few which I think will be helpful but is there a specific one which would do the trick?

Not a fix for the snap-in problem but you can type `defrag < driveletter >:` at a command prompt to accomplish the same task.

hi andy,
not sure how to do that, can you explain, thanks

Start Menu/Run, type `defrag c:` minus quotes, for example.

You could try Roxios Defragger. O.K. it's not free, which is a bit of a drag, but it can either do an ordinary defrag, or it can do one that actually optimizes the disk depending on your usage patterns. I found it great when I used Microsoft software.
