Can't defrag my hard drive

#1
I am running the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate and can't get the defragger to open. I try from the start menu, control panel, and even key it into the command prompt, but can't get it to open. Any ideas?

Try an external program like defraggler Google it.

I am having the same problem, running the same OS. Has anyone found a solution to this? Are others having this problem?

TIA

Solved - I wasnt waiting long enough for it to open. When I clicked on the defragmenter it didnt appear to be processing or opening. As such I went on to the next task, reboot the computer in case there was a problem. THen I tried again after rebooting....and it still looked as though nothing was happening, so again I went on to the next task (opening a browser window and looking for a solution).

I then closed the browser windows and see the defragmenter on the desktop. So I closed the defragmenter and attempted to open it again. This time I left the computer idle. 3 minutes and 50 seconds later defragmenter was open. I am not sure why it took so long to open. I am running a fairly powerful computer (Q6600 Quad Core with 6GB of DDR3 Ram).

Has anyone else experienced long wait times to open the defragmenter?

I would rather not install redundant programs on my computer. Does the defragger you suggest work better than the windows 7 built in defragger? What does it do differently?

I have no problem with the MS defragger taking some time to open, so long as I am aware of it. I am confident the MS version is analyzing something or doing some work in the background while it is opening????
