Sorry to trouble you with a win98 p.c. problem.
When I try to run defrag the p.c. freezes requiring a hard reboot. I would appreciate any comments.
The p.c. has 256k Ram has win 98se. I have disabled the screensaver and virus checker. Also is there a memory manager that I could use. Only intend to keep the p.c. for about 6 months. so do not want to spend to much money, many thanks

If your hard drive is running out of space you can expect trouble with defragging. I find it slows down after 50% full and starts getting into serious trouble after about 75%.

I think you have to do a scandisk first in 98 or
defrag does lock up.See this link:-click here

See if you can compress the drive if it is getting full.
