I use a great disk defrag app and have it set to do primary, secondary, and I-Fast defrags on each of three volumes (HD's) every day in the wee hours. Have used it for year or so with no problems.
Downloaded and installed XP Repair Pro 2006, and after making a back-up restore point, ran it to repair and them optimize system. Everything seemed fine after that......
....When auto-time came to run defragmenter, it sent a " program failed to initialize" error message. I uninstalled and re-installed the defrag prog thrice by now, and twice attempted a sytem restore from the points set upon installing, then upon running XP Repair Pro.
Still can't get my defragger to initialize. Even the pre-installed one that came with XP Home won't launch. Checked 'Services' and it seems to be started and set to automatic...dependency service 'Remote Proceedure Call (RPC) also seems fine.
I am assuming the XP Repair Pro 'cleaner' did this, but may be mistaken. Would like to avoid a major XP repair, as I have a crummy boot-up CD from E-Machines that is not very good.
Thank you, pros, for any enlightenment here.
