Defrag in Safe Mode.

Close down as many programmes as you can that are running in the System Tray as these take up your resources. Run Scandisc before you try and defrag.

If you have a hub connected to your USB port it wont defrag.Do it in DOS as VoG says.

All above advise very good and hope it does the trick...

Does your nephew use any shareware like Kazaa cause its security is low and the Klez worm is a big problem and can be the culprit big-time...

Run Ad-aware(delete all), RUN Anti-Virus, then above help!! <===and don't play with mouse or any peripheral during defrag!!

GL and let us know how it goes, feedback helps us too, thanks...
