Defragging in XP

By cherib43 ·
A couple of weeks ago, my computer came up with a false security alert, I knew right away it was a virus. I found w32.spybot.worm and after several attempts at removing it, I gave up. I repartitioned my hard drive and reformatted, and reinstalled. My problem is my computer has slowed down since the virus. Now it will not defrag, it analyzes and when finished I choose defrag and it just sits there. I have PC Tools spyware doctor running and just downloaded malwarebytes, it is scanning and says there are no threats. Can someone help?

Disable system restore, restart the machine in safe mode and rescan the system i am 100 % sure it will find something.

Hope this hopes.
