I think I messed up big time. I set Diskeeper 2007 to defrag at boot time 2 internal drives and 3 external USB drives. My
computer now starts to boot windows and then just crashes and restarts. I then get taken into the safe mode panel and it won't boot in safe mode or with last know configuration. I read in a fourm that Diskeeper can't boot defrag USB drives but I don't know how to undo the problem since I can't get into safe mode or even get a dos prompt. Any help would be appreciated.

What happens if you disconnect the external USB drives? They won't be there for Diskeeper to try to defrag so the system may boot.

Another possibility would be to do a manual System Restore from the Recovery Console to a date before you set Diskeeper to run this way, then boot to Safe Mode, login as Administrator and do a full System Restore (if needed).
