Can anybody tell me why I can't defragment my hard disk under Windows 98 SE? The program starts but does not proceed beyond 0%!

Likely because something else is running!

Try in safe mode.

Sounds like a running programme is preventing it starting. Try closing down running programmes using cnt-alt-del But do not close Explorer or Systray.
