    Problem Solved Uninstall Every Defragmentation Program - "Windows Xp Solution"

    I suggest installingor reinstalling it that you will be disconnected from the internet :eek:
    1 uninstall Every Defragmentation program Including Perfect Disk,
    2 Delete Raxco C:\Program Files\Raxco folder, Restart computer
    3 Install Raxco Perfect Disk
    4 Now you can defragment other partitions :) I just checked
    5 Do not use "defrag only-The last option", You can't still use that option
    6 You can do disk cleanup on other drives as well
    This is for Windows Xp :)
    No Need to delete registry keys
    You may only have one defragmenter installed on your computer, The defragmenter windows provides may stay, just don't install other ones :eek: I also double check what kind of anti virus you have
    It worked for me :)
    Follow these steps and you will be fine :)

    you might also try after update

    Download update from the Raxco website, then restart computer after update has finished do not click finish :eek:
    That will require you to uninstall the defragmenter like I said in the tutrorial
    I am not sure if you are able to download update from raxco site hmm
