Defragmenter

Can anyone help! I am a computer novice. I have noticed my PC getting slower so I tried to run the defragmenter but the system just hangs.I tried it again but the program wont even load. I have also noticed that if I right click in my computer on the C drive the egg timer comes on and the system hangs. Just to make matters worse I tried to make a backup with system restore and the dreaded egg time came up again and the system just hangs there.
Any advice would be appreciated.

restart pc and run defrag in safe mode which will overcome the problems you have with anti virus ware cutting in , which often delays derag
