Using Auslogic, I found about a dozen that were in C:\System Value Information that were marked "file in use, access denied." At the time, I had disabled Norton and was running no other program other than those which "pop-up" in the system tray.
44% seems awfully high for fragmentation, but I've also read that there are a number of programs that can't "be touched" that seem to run natively in Windows Vista.
So, I don't know if my computer is having a problem, and, if so, what it might be. Seems to be running fine and at the same speed for the 3 weeks I've had it. Suggestions?
My machine is a Compaq Presario:
Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
Athlon 4450e dual core processor
3 GB Ram
250 Gig HD
