Lost the Defrag for Windows XP

Here is another XP problem I've gotten into

A few weeks back I downloaded Executive Software's Diskeeper, I was hoping it would be an alternative to the regular Deframenter installed with windows,

Well for some reason it took the PLACE of the defragmenter that comes with XP

Since then I have deleted/removed Diskeeper with Add/Remove software in the Control Panel, but NOW I do not have ANY defragmenter

If I double click on My Computer then right click on the C: Drive then select properties then Tools....the Defragment options is grayed out, it states there is now defragmenter installed

How can I get the original Deframenter back??

Have you tried system restore to the time before you installed Diskeeper

It does that. I've been running Diskeeper for months just fine.

Can't seem to get through to Executive Software, tried sending them a email, but you have to enroll, and the web site is not working....I guess I could try calling them......

If I reinstsall the software (Diskeeper), is there some way to get back a choice of using the XP version of defragmenter??

As for System Restore, it has been turned off, temp. so that would not help me

I got my version of XP installed on my Sony Desktop PC , so I do not have a full version of XP, is there nay way to reinstall the original Defragmenter
