defrag windows xp auto.

I am trying to set up a schedule task to defrag windows xp auto. But it will not run as it says I did not supply a password. I didn't think I used a password when I installed XP. Any ideas what I need to do?

Thanks,

Harlan

1.Open Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Scheduled Tasks.

2.Double click Add Scheduled Task to open the Scheduled Task Wizard, and then click Next.

3.Click Browse, navigate to the %systemroot%\system32 folder, select defrag.exe, and click Open.

4.Use the wizard to set a schedule for when to run the defragmentation program, and be sure to supply a password for the account on which you want the task to run.

5.Check the box for Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish.

6.On the Run line, add the drive letter for the drive to be defragged. For example, %SystemRoot%\System32\Defrag.exe %HomeDrive%

Now the defragmenting task will be run according to your schedule.
