defrag and quick dont really belong in the same sentence but the Xp defrag program is much improved over previous incarnations so just run it normally from the start menu, it will take time the first time but if you make a habit of doing it regularly then it will get quicker.
obviously if you turn off your virus scanner etc it will be a little quicker , the best advice is just to schedule it to run while you are tucked up in bed for the night
Spoke too soon! I had assumed the couple of hours or so that it took to defrag the hdd was because I wasn't running safe mode. So tried it in safe mode. Analysis said that 7% of the drive was fragmented and didn't need defragging but I said defrag anyway. After 15 mins. it had done just 2% of the drive...I think something is wrong.
