Disk Defragmenter not working in XP

  Mikeonfreeserve 21:12 26 Jul 05

Just installed XP and I get the following error message when trying to defrag

Disk Defragmenter cannot continue prescan because there is a corruption in file:C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data

Defrag won't start Analysis, never mind defrag.

Has anyone any ideas please?

Go offline and disable your AV software before trying to defrag.

Re-enable when defrag has finished.

Mikeonfreeserve, I don't have an answer for your problem, but have you considered using some other defrag s/w?

Diskeeper Lite is really good, a lot quicker than the XP defrag utility and just as good(if not better) click here
