The defragmenter doesn't defragment files as such, it defragments your Hard Disc Drive. That is to say, after you have removed the likes of Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History it compacts the Data remaining on your Hard Drive closer together so that the programmes load faster when you require them. I am a little confused when you say that the Degragmenter programme is not Defragmenting certain files. Can you explain further please.

Further to my posting above. Du you mean that when you try and delete Temporary inter Files etc,. that you are getting a message saying that the delete programme could not delete Index.dat files.

Sorry, I can't help you any further on this problem. I am using Win 98se and I am not knowledgeable enough on Windows XP. Hang on in there I'm sure someone will be along shortly to pick up this thread and help get your problem solved. I personally have never come across this problem in Win98, but I will be very interested to know what the solution is. Cheers. :-)

As a footnote yto the above. Try running Scandisc and then Defrag you HDD again. You may have some damaged clusters.
