when I tried to run Diskeeper Lite ver 9, it gives an error stating "Diskeeper could not initialize". Even I tried to analyse fragmentation from command line, it failed. ( defrag -a c: ) It gave an error stating "Disk Defragmenter could not start".

Lately today, my system just reboots automatically due to voltage fluctuation. As you know window don't force disk check for such situation, when file system is NTFS. So, I myself set the disk dirty bit on by this command - "fsutil dirty set c:" to force disk check on next boot. And only after this, when my computer starts and I tried to use disk deframentation, it failed.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

The System File Check is only concerned with replacing missing or corrupt system files, and does not affect installed software or data

Try SpeeDefrag, at the end of installation, tick yes to start it, it will reboot the PC, defragment then switch the PC off
