defragmenting c drive problem

  chiquita 17:39 29 Aug 2004

I have Win 98 on a gateway solo 2150 and when trying to defrag, the system pauses on 2% and then struggles to get up to 4%. Goes back to 0 and starts again repeatedly never going above 4% even after 2 hours. The screen saver is switched off. Looking for details to no avail, blank screen. Never had problem on other kit. Does this indicate a mechanical fault, although all else works. Grateful for any help or opinions.
Thanks Chiquita.

either use vog suggestion or defrag in safe mode and leave it to do it overnight.

You've probably got another programme running- antivirus most likely- check for others- Processview or Enditall will tell you.

Thanks to Vog, johnnyrocker and canard. Yes there is antivirus running. All understood now.
Muchas gracias! Chiquita
