Most the files in your list are important system files. And will not be defragmented, this is normal.

There are two programs that are free on the net, one is called (buzzsaw.exe), that defrags your harddrive when ever you are not using it, ie press a key it stops, mouse ect. Another program out there named (pagedefrag.exe). This one takes care of system files at bootup. These programs have been safe for me. I have used the two for several years. But such as everthing else, backup your hard drive to insure. AS you make important changes. Backup!

You can download a third party defrag trialware that lets you defrag the master file table and page file before windows open them. A third party defrag program will run a lot faster and efficient than the built-in defrag program.

You could also download PageDefrag (freeware), which defrags a selected system files including the pagefile, the eventlogs, etc..

PageDefrag defrags at boot-time before windows is fully loaded.
Open PageDefrag, choose the "Defrag. at next boot option", press Ok.
Rebot your system.
