Sorry for the format,it wouldnt let me copy it any other way. And one more thing, something odd is going on with the amount of free space on my hard drive, last time i checked it last night and it said 30 gb which i dont get because i had over 40 the previous night and this morning it went back to normal. Why is the amount fluxuating ?

CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the master file table (MFT) bitmap. Windows has made corrections to the file system

This is the only real error found and it has corrected it

And one more thing, something odd is going on with the amount of free space on my hard drive, last time i checked it last night and it said 30 gb which i dont get because i had over 40 the previous night and this morning it went back to normal. Why is the amount fluxuating ?

That may be explained by temp internet files, however, you would need to empty them to regain the space.. So 'tis a bit of a mystery

I will neeed to research the defrag freeze a little deeper. Bear with me on this

OK lets try it from the command line

Click on the Start Orb and select All Programs, then Accessories, then right click on Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator"
Type

Defrag C: /v


When it runs it will give a commentary as it is going if it freezes then the file being defragmented will be the last one shown
Could you let me know what file it is

OK lets reinstall the defragment tool completely.
Locate the file dfrg.inf in the /windows/inf/ directory.
Right-click it and select Install from the menu.

Should be there, although saying that I could not locate it on my system

Lets try the following

a. Go to "Start > Run" on your computer.
b. Type (or copy/paste) rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\dfrg.inf and press "Enter"
3. Click "OK" to make the program automatically reinstall itself.

If that fails then do the following

a. Go to Start >All Programs>Accessories>Right Click on Command Prompt> select "Run As Administrator"
b. At command prompt, type "regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll" and hit "Enter."
c. Type regsvr32 dfrgui.dll and hit "Enter." This will reinstall any missing defragger files.

Odd, i couldn't do the first option because the start menu doesn't have a run program option in win 7 i think, i tried the second method and it said that dfrgui.dll was missing.
