    click start, run and type cmd, press enter.

    type cd \windows\system32

    then type

    'regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll' and press enter
    'regsvr32 dfrgui.dll' and press enter

    Post back with results please.

    I have tried the command prompt again. Im not that familiar with the way to type the command. It worked the second time and now the defragmenter work :D
    Thanks so much for your help. It's amazing how these things work.
