HI, I try to run disk defragmenter on my windows xp laptop and it analyses fine but when it starts to defragment it stays at 1% saying beside it compacting files and no matter how long I leave it, it wont budge. Can anyone help please as I would be grateful

Try starting the PC in Safe Mode & running defrag.

You've probably got a screensaver set to operate after a certain time or the HDD to switch off - change the timings if this is the case or move the mouse every five minutes or so.
