Defragging Me machine

By luciano991 ·
I have booted an ME machine up in the Safe Mode. Ctrl-Alt-Del shows only Systray and Explorer running. Machine will not complete defrag. Left on for 24 hours. Keeps restarting. What is disturbing the drive? Not connected to network or Internet. thanks

disable screen saver - also scan the QA section for previous questions - TheChas had an excellent answer for exactly this - can search for questions on his profile

Make sure that anti-virus and the screen saver is set to none

Run chk disk on the drive to see if the drive has errors on it,which may be causing drive to restart,if no errors,then try running scandisk first then defrag
