Howdy:

Right click on the My Computer icon and select "Properties".. Now, click on the "Tools" tab.. Is there no option to defrag there??

Hi ambmy9...

Failing to accomplish Murray's suggestion (Sorry Murray...I don't remember there being a Tools tab on the My Computer properties window in Win98), Click Start then Run and type defrag.exe and click "Ok". Disk Defragmenter is a little slow to open at times, so be patient...once open, follow the prompts as ususal.

Keep your Win98 cd handy and go to Start>Run.. Type in SFC and press "okay"..
Let SFC search for missing or corrupted files.. Do NOT worry about the "user" file.. it will be different and it should be..

Upgrading probably would, but I missed a step in my first post..

Double click your "My Computer" icon.. Now, when the new window opens, right-click on the c: drive icon and select "properties".. Now, click on the Tools Tab and select Defrag.. should be the last option..

Hi ambmy,
You could download the trial version of Diskeeper (a neat utility).
Also came across this on the net which some claim is a good defrag freeware

Refering back to your post no.4 - you say that you can get into Defrag but it stays at 0%.

Defrag runs best in Safe Mode with any Screen Saver turned off. If you can access defrag via Safe Mode it should perform. Constantly tap f8 on bootup.
