When i opened the computer disk defragmenter the thing said it was unable to analyze so it said to do
"CHKDSK or SCANDISK on (C:\)

Ive done both and it still has the same error message, i can't defrag my computer it has been crashing for a while and im worried that my computer may ruin


Is there anyway other possibilities that i can defrag my computer?

I would download and run JK Defrag. I never use Windows.
I have used this Defrag program fo 2 yrs and I think it does an excellent job.

Yeah I use JKdefrag too. It can usually defrag when other programs can't. But if you're worried that your computer is failing, now is the time to backup your important files to DVD-ROM and/or CD-ROM.

Tell us exactly what you did...when you ran chkdsk. Running it in read-only mode...accomplishes nothing.

When trying to run defrag prompts advice from XP to run chkdsk...it's advisable to do so, regardless of what defrag product you may desire to use. The hard drive/file system needs chkdsk /r to be run.

How large is your hard drive, and how much free space do you have on it? You need to have at least 15% free space for swap space, if you don't have this it can cause your computer to bog down, and you would have trouble defragging it as well.

How did you run the chkdsk? Start> My Computer> right click on C: Drive> Properties> Tools> Error Checking? Did you check at least the first choice?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
