When I run either Diskkeeper Lite or windows own defragger (I'm running XP home on a Toshiba laptop) the defragger hangs for ages. It will always get to the same point (10% complete for diskeeper and 35% for the Windows one) and then sit for about 15 - 30 minutes. Taskmanager shows that CPU is not being used by the defragger. Sometimes the "program not responding" message comes up and sometimes the process manages to finish.

I have deinstalled and reinstalled diskkeeper. I run the same version on my desktop without problems and it runs really fast.

Any thoughts? Could there be a problem on the hard disk?

when defrag hangs up. does it state restart or contents changed?
try turning off virus scans and screen savers. sometimes the virus scan takes over to check for viruses on moving files, ( bogging down and locking defraging)

it might work for you, do a scandisk to check drive c
start, my computer, drive c: (right click and go to properties)
then on top tabs to tools

NTFS4Dos I'd try running the chkdsk and defrag utility on this floppy and see what happens.

Plus before you run this just run your hdd manufacturers diagnostic utility on the drive.
