    When I try to defrag my computer I get this message.
    I've tried going on the web but can't find anything.
    Any help appreciated.

    :eek: How did you prevent Microsoft Management Console from handling MSC files??

    MSC file should be referred to Microsoft Management Console, you should find it in the registered application index (by choosing the second option in the captured window you sent).
    If not locate the application mmc.exe in the %windir%\system32 folder.
    Remember to save mmc as the default application to run MSC files.

    msc files

    i just had the same problem. glad i found this post. the reason i had the problem is norton utilities 2002. i uninstalled it and cleaned the registry of all the leftover stuff from it, and had the problem. yout post helped me fix it. i uninstalled nu 2002 because i think it slows the boot process(startup precesses). i could hear my harddisk go thunk thunk like it was going from one end of the disk to the other. if you ever look at the speeddisk map, you probably see some entries at the very end of the disk. speeddisk puts most of that stuff there. during a defrag, ive seen speeddisk move stuff in and out of there.

    Come to think of it I probably did the same as you, I uninstalled
    Norton Utilities 2002 in my opinon its a load of crap.

    I'm using (O&O Defrag) now and my comp is running better than
    ever.
