Defragmentation is taking so long is it working?

I began defragmenting my C drive 12 hours ago and it is only as far as 2% which then goes blank and starts again. Is there anything i need to do?

Probably best to defrag in Safe Mode when there isn't much running that can interrupt the defrag.

To get into Safe Mode reboot and keep tapping the F8 key before the Windoes screen loads.

Do it in safe mode. It might be a screen saver or a AV or anything kicking in. Just hit F8 whilst its booting up (XP) or F5 (98.ME).

Ctrl+Alt+Del and Endtask everything except Explorer and systray then run Defrag. A better idea is to download 'enditall' from click here. This excellent progggie will close down all unnecessary running progs including hidden ones. When you reboot the programmes will run again.
