I ran Defrager for 10 hours and it stayed on 0% complete. The system tray icon was moving all the time. What is wrong, that it won't complete?

There are many fixes for W95/98 defrag , but the best is to install
Windows ME defrag ( free ) , very fast . I don't need to close
( ctrl/alt/delete ) anything down to run defrag , no restarts .
Get it from here .

W9X-Me-Defrag

http://surecool.com/download.htm

Download it right into your Windows directory. Rename your
current version of DEFRAG.EXE to DEFRAG.OLD, then rename
winme_DEFRAG.EXE to DEFRAG.EXE ( or whatever the old defrag
was named )

=================================

Also , to make W98 Defrag even Faster for it's 1st run , from
Explorer , Delete all the files ( except the read only file )
in Windows / Applog .
Taskmon will rebuild the Applog file .

=================================

To put the defrag in it's correct place .
Open Windows explorer , go down to Windows , left click on the yellow
folder , this opens the right hand panel .
Scroll down to defrag & write down the exact name . Next , right
click on defrag , scroll down to rename & click on it . Now left
click at the end of defrag & add the word old . So if you had the
word defrag , it now becomes defragold .
Now rename MEdefrag to whatever you wrote down , drag & drop it on
the yellow Windows folder or anywhere in the right hand side .
Both achive the same thing & Windows will after you close , put it
alphabetically . That's it .

You could try control+alt+delete and end all tasks except systray and explorer. . . . or you can also go into msconfig from the run line (only if you are using 98 or ME) and choose selective startup with nothing checked. Rebooting then trying it again. . . and then going back in after it is done and then checking normail startup.

use safe mode to do the defrag.

When you start boot up your computer, before the windows logo, press F8 3 or 4 times and choose safe mode..

Hope this solve the problem.
