Good Morning
When running defrag What must be left running when you go to alt, ctrl, delte to end the things running. I started to defrag my hard drive but it keeps starting over. It was running 4 hours and getting nowhere. :cry:
Thank You
Ed

Sounds like you're running Win98? Close down all your programs running, everything in your taskbar.

As far as the task manager, leave Systray and Explorer and close everything else. If you still can't get it to run, boot into safe mode and retry.

not sure if this would help, but try to boot into safe mode, that way, it will not run some of the applications that can secretly and continuously dump crap to your harddrive (that may explain why it was taking forever), and then run defrag.
