    I don't believe that any services are involved with defrag if you are using the Windows one. Are you sure it is not Diskeeper or another?

    What happens when you go to Start > Run, and type:

    defrag.msc

    ?

    There are many free ones.

    Free defraggers:

    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
    IObit Smart Defrag (Can be scheduled and boot-time defragging.)
    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.)
