Ok I have had it with trying to figure stuff out on my own. I have a copy of windows that I have needed to install like 10 times because every install something new happens. I finally got it to install all the way and windows now works for once. Now that I got it install It wouldnt read like my dvd games... It would read cd games just fine, but then tells me that my cd/dvd rom was not a win 32 app when I put a DvD game in. WELL I did fix that after going to windows and doing what they told me. NOW I have Fragmented Files that won't go away. I'm thinking I might have a problem but I'm not sure. I'm not putting a HiJackthis log yet I'm hoping its just something simple that can be resolved fast and with no headaches. Anyway this is what it tells me when I Fragment my C:\ which I pretty much only keep windows on and like my spybot avg and my other spyware removal things.

Fragments | File Size | File Name
4 1kb \

22 1kb \Documents and Settings\jon\local settings\Temp

6 93kb

\system volume information\_restore{63010313-59e0-45a0-b29e-4b179fdcc605}\rp16\change.log.4

Sorry last file wouldnt fit but thats what i get when i try to defrag.

Please help!

Nothing to worry about.

Due to the way that files are stored on your hard drive, its not always possible for Windows to rearrange them the way it wants to, why is why it says that certain files remain fragmented.

Anyway the files in your case are just temporary files and the other one is part of System Restore so they aren't even critical.
