Can't get C drive defragged. Will get so far then goes back to beginning. Gets a little further each time but I can't get it to go beyond fifty per cent. Eventually screen goes black and I have to reboot. When I try to defrag Drives D,E onwards, get message that defrag isn't installed. Have re-installed Windows (ME) but no further progress possible. Have seen similar question in problem pages some while back but can't find relevant magazine. Would appreciate help please

Turn off screen savers, and by using control/alt/ delete keys close all programs except for explorer and sys tray, this should enable defrag to do it's job. J.

Have you done a scandisk?, I had this problem too and scandisk sorted it. I also did as Djohn said after that.

Try running Defrag in Safe Mode.
That way nothing else is running.
I have had problems like you before and it fixed the problem for me.
