Try running the Defrag in Safe Mode.

Do you have anything of this nature on your system?:

click here as you will see, defrag is one of the programs that the MMC handles. So the problem is likely something wrong either with MMC itself, or with the defrag program.

Try and see if you can locate the defrag program yourself, and run it directly - the name to look for is in the list at the above link.

Let us know what happens.

Sorry - should have noticed - in Windows 98, look in the windows folder for defrag.exe and try to run it directly - double click on it.

You're right - for some reason I subconsciously associated MMC with MultiMedia and the "selected file" as a codec...:-)

I have located the defrag program and it runs fine.

I have MMC 1.2 on the system!

I have located the defrag program and it runs fine. But when I right click-properties-tools-defragment now, I am still getting the message "MMC cannot open the selected file"

What's going on?.

I have MMC 1.2 on the system!
