defrag windows xp pro and foriegn keyboard settings user 2

by shirleyanneruss / January 13, 2010 5:30 PM PST

i go to defrav via prog/accessories/syst tools, but when i click defrag the message;mmc cannot open the file....this may be because
1 it is not a mmc console
2 was created by a later version
3 you do not have sufficient rights to access this file.
so, i then go into computer management click storage and then disk defrag and from here it works. the question is, i have admin rights, so why can i not do defrag the ordinary way? incidentally, if i got via a new user i create, disk defrag works as it should, however all this is english but the hew user has the keyboard in french? can i change the keyboard settings for the new user to the normal one?
