disk deframenter not working (opening) in Windows 7
After installing Windows 7 (Home Premium 64-bit) the disk deframenter does not work, either through the Windows 7 menu, or through Accessories>system tools, or by simply clicking on the .exe. Any suggestions?
it's working now!!! i ran msconfig, and looking down the services tab, saw that defrag was not selected. i checked that box, hit ok and it suggested a restart. i restarted, and when i went to windows explorer, right clicked my hard drive, selected Properties
- Tools - Defragment now - it started working.
The problem was actually Norton 360 3.5, whch is supposed to work with Windows 7, but which wouldn't run its own take-over of Disk Defrag. I had a suervisor at Norton remotely control the computer to solve the problem, but all he managed to do was to restart
my computer so that I got the dreaded black screen saying 'This is not a genuine copy of Windows 7'. I solved that by starting in safe mode, using system restore, and then deleting Norton (for ever! No problems with Trend Micro). Disk Defrag eventually gave
me a message that the settings had been taken over by another program, and allowed me to remove those settings. It then worked.
