I was worried I had a virus and we believe we had the problem fixed, its been running fine for the past couple days since then and I went to run a disk defrag this morning and it goes as far as Pass:1 17% relocated....and stays at that for more then an hour. Its never done this before and this is a brand new computer (6months old) so I'm a little worried since I spent alot on it. Its a HP Pavilion Dv7 Quad-core running at 2.5ghz per core with 6 gigs of ram and 500gig hard drive and 1gb Nvidia graphics card.

Yes, I am running the new Avast....I however have had this program running before and it never caused a problem, so I was a little confused.

Try disabling it while defragmenting or do it in safe mode.

Are you using the built-in defragmenter in Windows 7?

Try Defraggler. If it hangs, take note of the file it hangs on, and post it back here. :huh:

While you're at it, go ahead and run full scans using Malwarebytes' and SUPERAntispyware to be sure you are not infected.

I've tried it in both safe mode options and it won't even let me do it....I've ran malwarebytes and nothing is coming up infected....and yeah I'm using the defrag that came with windows 7...I've used it 4 times since I've had this computer and it worked all those times.

ok just making sure that it was and that it really did the job.....I just have to get used to the whole interface. Where do I know how much needs to be fragmented when I'm looking at it?

You're question is worded weird...I'm not sure what you're asking.

If you analyze the drive first, it will show you the fragmentation percentage...if that's what you're after...
