I have a computer that is running Windows XP, and I have tried to defrag it, but it just won't do it. It's kind of like it is running, it'll get to 1% and just stay there...won't go any further. Any ideas on what could cause this? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance :tazz:

It can do this for 20 mins

You can try these

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
