Subject : computer won't defrag disc

Question : when I try to defrag the disk on my notebook it says "checking disc for errors" for 12 hours and only gets up to 3%. What do I need to do to defrag this disc?

Answer : Make sure no other tasks are running - you have something running that makes it restart over and over again each time the disk contents get changed. Close all apps (including those on the systray at the bottom-right). Then press CTRL-ALT-DEL once and in the list that comes up End Task on all except "Explorer" and "Systray". Then start your defrag.
