    It's possible that the problem lies with the disk being accessed while the defragmenter is running (always was a problem on 98.)

    hit ctrl+alt+delete and end as many processes as you can without rendering the computer in need of rebooting to use it, and then try defragging.

    If in doubt, list the running processes here and either someone else or myself will try and tell you what you can end and what you shouldn't.

    ok. That's simple then.

    End ALL processes except for explorer and systray

    defrag, and reboot when complete.
