Disk Fragmenter won't move from the bottom bar

To defrag I went via Start...All Programs...Accesories...System Tools....Disk Defragmenter. (In Windows XP)

When I selected Disk Defragmenter the words appeared on the bottom Task Bar but when I left click on it nothing happens.

When I right click I can find no selection that brings it into the normal window I've so often seen and used.

Is there a setting that should be changed somewhere?

Can you do a system restore to a time before this happened?

I've (or rather my computer guru friend)had finished just upgrading my computer with a new Motherboard and defragmenting was to be the last step in tidying the Hard Disk afet this major surgery!

Windows had to be reset so I have nothing to restore to.

Thanks for trying Brian.

New board + old drive with system on it = problems.

It would be far better for you to do a complete, fresh, re-install of your O/S. You should be able to copy all your vital records (assuming the system works at all) with the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.

Can you tell us the resolution please?
