Running windows me. When running defragmentation of disk it doesn't progress. It hangs at 0%. Any ideas on why?

This is the standard windows defragging software

Ctrl + Alt + Delete and delete each program that is running except for Explorer and Systray. Also turn off your screensaver.


A handy free program for closing all open programs:

EndItAll2.zip is a program that lets you close all running programs. Comes in handy when wanting to do a Scandisk or Defrag or wanting to close all open programs prior to an install.

Download (it's FREE) from:

Please excuse me from jumping in, but I downloaded the enditall program but was curious , are some programs that should not be shut down? and how are they restored once you close or kill a program ?


thanks

It has been said several times before that all you need is Systray and Explorer, but from personal experience, if you're running a home network, there are other files that need to be left running or the system crashes. The next time you boot-up, any needed programs will be started again.
