    Soyo SY-K7ADA Motherboard w/ AMD Duron CPU. A recurring problem is that defrag.exe hangs up. Does anyone know where to find defrag.exe on the WIN98SE distribution disc? Using "Registry Mechanic" took care of the problem after an operating system reload. It recured after 1 week and "Reg. Mech." has not been of use. No Virus found.
    Thanks,
    Richard Baldwin

    Other way is to simply boot to safe mode. This way the other programs that might be running in the background won't be. Also a great way to do a scan disk as well.
