had some trouble with zoek?

i had to run it like 3 times

it would open a window a whole bunch of info would appear and then it was gone??

i think it finally worked properly after a bit.

 

i cant get smart de frag to open a full window?

i can scan but cant get to the defrag button. lol

can i fix this or is there an other free defrag i can get?

 

i got 360 total security on my pc, should i delete ms security essentials?

360 is scanning my hard drives now.

it found a threat and is kind of slow now,the scan dose not seam to be progressing any more.

i paused it and un-paused it but it's not progressing at the moment.

 

any suggestions.

 

i think my pc sent a report to 360 about the issue.
