Try stopping all the programmes running in the background shown in the taskbar, except systray and explorer!

thanks for your responses .. i downloaded diskeeper lite , which has done a good job. tried shutting things down (and in the past)but same result ,8% then message defrag 004. Am pleased with diskeeper so willing to go that route . may try doing it in start up as phil suggested when feeling brave....
