    Please don't post more than one thread for one problem

    The most common cause for defrag not completing is a program running in the background. Try running defrag in safe mode...

    Hi Mary,

    You will need to run your Defrag in Safe Mode. If you are running Win98/ME constantly tap f8 whilst it is booting up. You will get options one of which is "Safe Mode" your screen will look odd ( no drivers - strange colours ) but you should be able to Defrag your system.
