    or try this
    Click Start, click Run, type C:\Windows\Inf, and then click OK.

    Right-click the dfrg.inf file, and then click Install.

    Try another defragger. But don't defrag too much. It is counter-productive with NTFS if usage data has not been gathered. Once a month is more than enough. And only use one since they have use different algorithms and work against one another.

    Free defraggers:

    Swift Disk Defrag
    IObit Smart Defrag (Schedule and boot defrag.)
    Defraggler
    Auslogics Disk Defrag
    DefragNT
    WinContig
    Ultra Defragmenter
    Defrag GUI (GUI for native defrag.exe.)
    DIRMS 1.2.20 Defragger (command-line)
    JKDefragGUI
    Disk Idle Optimizer
    Power Defragmenter
    Diskeeper Lite
    O&O Defrag 2000 Freeware
    DefragMentor Lite (Boot-time and command-line.)


    (PageDefrag is good to use with all the above in XP. It does a boot-time defrag of all the major locked files.)
