Norton Speed Disk problem

  griffo 22:09 28 May 05

I have Norton Systemworks on my XP Pro laptop. I have been trying to defrag. using speed disk. It gets to around 24% optimised and then seems to go into some sort of a 'loop'. The PC slows so that each keystroke takes about 2 - 3 minutes to register and speed disk doesn't progress any further.
I have used XP and Diskeeper to defrag and then tried Norton again, with the same results. When I stop Speed Disk and go back into Diskeeper (I only downloaded v7 lite, to try to give Norton less to do), I find that the drive is massively fragmented again!
Any ideas please?
