  1. Thanks for the info so far but my system still will not defrag even in Safe Mode it still stops at 10% and then restats with drivers changed restarting. Any other ideas Aol states I must try to defrag for some reason LOL

    I agree with Peddant, DUMP THE AOL! I would also make sure there are no programs running in the backround while defragging. Ctrl-Alt-Delete to Task Manager see what's running and close. I would also exit out of any anti-virus program as well. I have had much success following these parameters.
    Good Luck!

    You already asked this question in another thread Don't create another thread for the same problem, next time keep posting in the same thread.

    And I agree with the previous replies, get rid of AOL, it makes your computer run like crap

    I had the same problem..the defrag would stop at 10%, but I was running Windows 98....all I did to fix it was get a third party defrag program
