I'll supply the link that covers all known issues, but a surprising one to most is that QUICK LAUNCH is a program as well...
Read http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;222469 which applies to DEFRAG as well.
My ME defrag program starts but doesn't get past 0 or 1%. I believe that it restarts continuously because some program is writing to the hard drive, but I don't know how to figure out what program is the culprit. Anyone have any ideas?
I'm using an HP Pavilion XE783 running Windows ME. Norton Antivirus is loaded but I disable it to try to defrag. I tried using Norton Utilities to defrag and experience the same problem.
