As I try to defragment my pc it gets to 10% then it says DRIVER'S SETTINGS CHANGED....RESTARTING..

What does this mean?? and what do I do??

It means you have something running in the background.

What version Windows?

Reboot the PC.

Once the desktop loads. CRTL, ALT and DELETE End Task for everything listed EXCEPT EXPLORER and SYSTRAY.

Once the list only shows those two, try again.

or defrag in Safe mode..
