Hey. I use diskeeper to defrag my computer but when i defrag my computer restarts on its own. When i reanalyze it, the hd was barely defragged. I turned off all programs using enditall and it still wont defrag. Safe mode won't help because diskeeper only runs in normal mode. It wont even let me do boot up defrag! Can someone help me?

try reinstalling diskeeper before installing windows.

and for future installs, i'd recommend making a separate partition for important data...that way you can install windows without having to worry about losing any.

this happens even if i use the windows defragment after i uninstalled diskeeper and it shouldnt be window's fault. on my last computer that i owned i had the same problem but i didn't know how to fix it.

before defragging try a scan with spybot. do a disk clean. boot to recovery console and try a chkdsk /r. if all goes smoothly then do your defrag.

Virus - sorry, i dont think so, try Perfect disk as dealer suggests.

The MS Defrag tool is pretty weak, which is why your defrag loks so poor. Norton Utilities also has one, but Norton products are a bit flakey and come with lots of unnecessary additions you may not want.

Doing a chkdsk before a defrag is a good idea though, but it wont make the built in windows one perform any better.
