Hi , Lately when i try to defrag my hard drive the defrag proccess seems to start but stays on 0% complete and does not complete, if i clik show details the screen remains blank. I have also checked the last time I defraged by clicking my computer and right clicking drive c and selecting properties, even then although i just tried to defrag it says last defrag date 38 days ago, also says the same for last backup and last scan disk date although i have just carried out these tasks too, can anyone please suggest what might be wrong and how to sort it, thanks, i am using windows 98
Try the following method. Use your Ctrl/alt/delete keys at the same time, and it will bring up a window showing all running programs.
Close down all programs, except Explorer and Sys. tray, by highlighting each one in turn and clicking on, (End Task).
Some of them may require you to do this a couple of times before responding! Once you have done this, go to, start/run, and type the word, Defrag in the box, and click OK, or press the enter key on keyboard, It should now go through a defrag in approximately 15 to 20 minutes. J.
