i have used this program ever since i had my virus problem and i saw it in a staff members signature.
It has worked fine for me but lately it has shows allot of unmovable files. I downloaded bootspeed to see if it said something different and it told me the unmovable files were fragmented and that me my whole drive was at 24 % fragmentation.
Can i do anything with the unmovable files?
Is bootspeed just wrong?

Every 'system' drive has unmovable files, these include the swap-file (used as virtual memory) and other files which are 'locked' (ie. being used by Windows when Windows is actually running).

The only way around that is to use a utility which has an option to defrag at boot time before Windows starts.

I put it on one of my machines yesterday(windows 2000sp4) after reading phillips reply to your thread, defragged both my small internal Seagate 6 gig hard drive, and my Western Digital 160 gig usb external hard drive. Software ran without a hitch. That said, I haven`t tried the "defrag at boot time" function part as of yet.

The absolute most perfect time to defrag is when NO program is running. This would be at boot up as stated.
Some users will defrag in safemode, but I personnally find it a pain to do so.
