Diskeeper lite and W98

  MIKE. 10:16 13 Aug 2006

I just realised I tagged this question twice on different areas of helproom this was not intended.Sorry if this seems a simple question but can you run Diskeer lite on W98 without problems. I have a friend who's PC is very slow and he use's W98,I will defrag his machine next week and hope diskeeper lite will be my saviour. I use Diskeeper lite on my XP and it works like a dream.

Hi Mike, I run Win 98SE and have another suggestion which you may find of interest.
If you go to click here
and download a file called newdefrag.zip (near the bottom of the page) you will be able to install this in your Windows 98SE. This is the Defrag.exe file which they now install in Windows ME.
The file comes complete with all instructions for installation.
Apparently, by the time Microsoft had got to Windows ME they had sorted out the Defrag problem.
I find that the Defrag.exe file from Win ME is about 10 times faster than the standard 98SE file and is much more stable.
I have been using it for years now with no problems whatsoever and it's FREE.

Also be sure to stop ALL running programs including the Screen Saver, A/V and Firewall.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Wak I think the site you gave may be down at the moment I will try again a bit later. Many thanks for your help.

Hi, Mike, I've just tried the above link and it doesn't seem to be working today.
However, if you can't get through to it, I can let you have the required Defrag.exe file (209KB)if you wish to contact me through the yellow envelope above next to my name.
