People trying to use the built-in disk the defragmentation tool on a Microsoft Windows XP computer may sometimes have a problem services registry operating system workstation laptop desktop hard drive hdd I went through registry editing trial ware, surfed for hours looking for answers, turned off firewalls, and banged my head against real ones for two nights!!! As soon as I restored the dfrg.msc file to C:\Windows\System32 from a backup, the defragmenter program came up and began working normally again. Hope this helps.

Thank you all. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/514813/computer-wont-finish-defragging/ YOU RULE!!!!! I tried defragging on an XP machine once and it kept re-starting the defrag because there was a screen saver set to run after ten minutes or so. the app opened, and when I clicked on the Analyze button it worked, and problem solved!!
Thanks for this board and all the input though, because it is what gave me the idea and the courage to experiment! this content Return code was: 0x80040154" Kyle Thomas 29/11/2004 7:45 a.m. #re: How To: Fix Windows Built in Defragmenter Had the same problem, turns out that in SP2 you have to have "DCOM Sign in to make your opinion count.

Hope it helps someone else out there !!! Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files. They take up less memory and use fewer resources.Remember you need a firewall, an anti-spyware and a couple of good anti-spyware products, try these;Firewall - ZoneAlarm free versionAnti-virus - AVG FreeAnti-spyware

I ended up nuking the drive as the backups were obsolete anyway and it was about time to clear the path for another year of backup. even when i force a boot time chkdsk at command prompt, it runs, but diskeeper still wont let me defrag. The primary hard drive, ( the "C" drive ), defrags properly, on command, as it should. http://roguewb.com/windows-xp/windows-xp-administrator-problems.html Type: cd \windows\system32 Register the defrag components, by typing: regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll regsvr32 dfrgui.dll At this stage, you may find the defragmenter works.
but if you have your inf folder hidden search will not find it. Using the site is easy and fun.
