Charlie, I gotta ask couple dumb questions,,,,,,,

1) Is the PC on at nite so the scheduled defrag can run?

2) Did you turn OFF your screensaver, not just power down the monitor?

Question DeFrag notb working?

Thanks for the reply..
The computer stays on all the time,but may go into the "sleep mode" at night.
Are the screen savers causing this not to work,if so what do I change to fix it?Thanks, Charlie

Cool Ctrl/Alt/Del

Right click on the desktop. Select properties, screensaver and turn it off. MSN messenger off, Yahoo off, antivirus off. Do a Ctrl/Alt/Del and see what’s running. The only things you need running is ‘Systray” and “Explore” you can turn everything else off. When you re-boot all will be re-loaded…

I gave up with reserving a whole night for defrag...Which often stopped half way through!!
I ve used Norton utilities speeddisk for ages now and have never had any problems with it....Its really fast too..1 hour at the most!
