Hi, this could occur if your hd has less than 15% unused space. Defrag needs space to 'work'.
I would suggest also that you clean-up as much as possible before doing the defrag, ie run Disk Cleanup and then clear out Temp Files/Cookies etc from within IE. Then have another try. I am sure I don't need to tell you that no other progs should be running etc?

Good luck.

Me again - have a search through this lot, you may perhaps find the answer - scroll down the page and you will see your problem mentioned.
Good luck.
