Disk Defragmenter won't work!?!?

by zapachna666 / February 22, 2007 8:42 PM PST

pls help!!! when i load up disk defrag and press either 'analyse' or 'defrag' nothing happens, no defragging no error messages, simply nothing...

i run Windows XP HE and hav had to use system restore and selected 'repair' instead of the full system restore once to fix an error problem that occurred with defragmenter, ths did fix that problem and its been months since that occurence.

the only thing a i can think of is something to do with RegCure, it only stopped working after installing that i believe, also after installing this program my Creative Media program no longer detects my Creative mp3 player even tho CTdetect.exe is running at start up...

any and all help on this subject is much appreciated, thanks, zapachna666

I had a simalar problem and I booted the computer up in safe mode then defraged and then it works.
The second time it worked normally.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
