Yes! turn off your screensaver, then use ctrl/alt/del. keys together and when the window opens,close all programs except, explorer and sys. tray.

defrag will now fly through, on finishing restart your PC to bring back the progs. you have closed down.

First: Open in "Safe Mode". Press F8 as you start up the computer. When the screen opens use the down key to move the cursor to Safe Mode. Press the Return Key to OK.

Second: Close down Screen Saver and and other energy saving modes.

Third: Run Disc Clean.

Fourth: Run Defrag.

Fith: Restart and Restore Display settings.
