Did you try to run it in safe mode?

Boot into safe mode so that there are no unwanted processes clashing with the defragment, screensaver and virus scans can also interrupt the defragment, if you are using the Windows tool. IF that doesnt work, get an automatic third party tool, once set you dont have to bother about doing this manually everytime.

Try using the "defrag" command in command prompt instead.
