Problems Defragmenting HD

Hello!
After defragmenting my hard drive, I get the error that some files could not be defragmented and they all seem to be norton-related files. I'm guessing it might be have some sort of higher protection on its files being accessed by other programs. I tried defragging with a clean boot so that there was definately no norton programs running in the background but got the same message. Can't see anything on norton's site about it either :tazz: :)
Any help would be appreciated because as you can see the HD is still fairly fragmented.

Ok I've just found out that you can't defragment memory dump .dmp files. Is it safe to delete them? They are annoying me :tazz:

I seem to have one of these files for every day I've use the computer! Apparently they are created when the computer crashes or something but my comp very rarely crashes so I don't know why they are being created.
