1. Defrag on my mainframe will not run, it just gives me the "Defrag won't start" I have 8% disk space (I know, its low, but I can run it on my laptop at 6%) when I try to run it through command prompt it just gives me a syntax error and shows the correct usage (it IS correct) on this computer, it is not compltely necessary that I run it now but I would like it to be run.

2. on my laptop, the speed all of sudden dropped, and I mean DROPPED, I was on face book and it just stopped moving, so I restarted, it took 20 minutes to start up and then 5 more to open the start menu, and I couldn't even open task manager to see what was going on. I threw it into to safe mode and ran virus scan, nothing, I ran defrag, it was like 90% fragged, took a week to finish, still slow, ran disk cleanup, and defrag again, still slow, and now I'm running spybot, I tried running chkdsk but for some reason it hates running, even on restart or in safe mode with command prompt (this is true on every computer I have ever used, it just says "Can't lock drive")

The defrag issue I am sure can be resolved by zipping some of your rarely used item to free up enough space for it to run, you could also compress the drive that would free up a lot.

I have read where Face Book has had a bug or two lately, if you Google Face Book bugs you may be able to fix it, the other option if that does not help is to get Superantispyware and Malwarebytes and run their scans to dee if you may have picked up something.

Ok, so, for some reason my fingerprint scanner driver destroyed the CPU (I think) I rolled it back and now it works :-) but due to freaking out at low CPU I shut off all startup crap so can someone give me an extended list of how my services.msc menu should look? I only need the basic stuff because none of it is how it should be... also can I see a pic of the startup and services section in msconfig?

The NTFS file system needs a minimum of 15% free space to allow for defragmentation.

One way to recoup storage space is to disable system restore, reboot, then enable SR again if you wish.

Well, funny thing about that... chkdsk says the file system is nfts but when I schedule it for restart, it says its FAT and can't check it... plus, whenever I run defrag on my laptop at 6% it just says in order to run properly defragmenter needs 15% disk space would like to run it anyways, this one just says defragmenter won't start, even when I just click analyze
