Disk Defragmenter not working

I have been using Diskeeper to defragment my drives but have removed said software now and
want to revert back to windows's own defragmenter. The problem is that an error now pops up saying 'Snap-in failed to initialize'.
Name: Disk Defragmenter.
CLSID:{43668E21-2623-11D1-A1CE-0080C88593A5}.
When ever I try to use it. It would appear
that in removing Diskeeper it has altered windows some how, but I don't know how to get it
back again. I am using windows XP and can't find any reference to this on Microsoft web
site. Can anybody help please.

Have you tried...
Start > Run > Copy and Paste:

SFC /SCANNOW

Click "ok" and have your XP CD already in the drive?

I can't imagine why you should want to revert back to the Windows defrag program. The XP version is after all a scaled down version of Diskeeper.

Thanks guys but still not got it working. Think I will have to resort to re-installing windows.
