I managed to get the MS defrag analyser running but when I try to defrag it doesn't get past 1%. Any ideas why this might be - do I need to close other programes like AVG, ZA etc?

Turn off all running programs including screensavers and try again

Tried running it. Exactly the same - analyses no problem but then doesn't get past 1% of the actual defrag.

Try this free program, I use it and it is better than the XP one.

You may have a corrupt file.
Try a system file scan.
Go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (Watch the space between sfc and /) hit enter. You may need your XP CD

Hi I downloaded this one and I am very impressed with its performance,

Disk Cleaner lite/ FREE

It was much faster than the Windows one and did a better defrag,

before running defrag always run chkdsk to clear up any disk errors.

go my computer highlight c drive right click- properties - tools - click chkdsk it will tell you to restart that is normal. [tick box to fix any errors]
