Please could anyone help me. I am having problems in Defragmenting my C Drive. For six hours it only defragments 1% and a message appears " Something is writing to this Drive" I cleared my bottom task bar, exiting Mcafee virus scan, security centre, power DVD,create CD,but still no improvement. Thank you for your help

Try it in safe mode (Tap F8 on boot)

It could be your screen saver.

Just to re-iterate what rawprawn said, you DO Tap F8 on boot and not just hold it down.

You have a program running which is interfering with defrad- press control +alt+delete keys to find out what it is. If you have a digital camera attached to your PC it could be that.
