When I try to defrag it hangs the system and I have to do a power off to unhang it.

I haven't defraged in 39 days and after downloading Eraser 5.7 and running it to delete only unused space I decided to try my defrag and see if it effected the scattered clusters it wouldn't work.

I honestly don't think Eraser caused it as everything else I have tried to run seems alright.

I have replaced my drfragexe(using the me defrag) and deleted the Appoog file as suggested elsewhere to no avail.

I had hesitated to defrag in Safe Mode because the last time I did this it took forever to reboot to normal mode.

The defrag did work in Safe Mode and was slow in rebooting back up to normal mode but I guess that is better than no defrag at all.

Programs running in the background will slow down the defrag process also. I would go to Start, Run and type in msconfig and click OK. Then click on the Start Up tab and un-check the programs that are checked. These are programs that are running in the background when you start your computer. With these programs not running I'd try to defrag agin. Good Luck.
