What's the best way to defragment a Win98se system. Glad to see they aren't completely dead!

A partition will always appear to have deleted files still existing on it, this doesn't tell anything significant about the action of a defragmenter. The names of deleted files remain in the filename directory, with the starting cluster number where the original file began. The first character of the filename is changed to an illegal character so it will be ignored by the file system and not returned as a valid entry in file listings, and the cluster chain belonging to it in the FAT is marked as available. It's these "tagged" filenames that are reported by file recovery utilities, and this information is not altered by a defragmentation. What will change is the contents of the clusters where the deleted file was stored - during a defrag they will almost certainly be overwritten by the contents of a moved file, which will mean the original file content is not recoverable.
When i check my disk with a deleted file scan,etc.. after a defrag there are still DELETED FILES on it
I guess you meant to say at the start of the drive - the basic purpose of the compaction phase of defrag with a simple file system like FAT is to move all the files a close as possible to the start of the partition where the FAT is located, leaving the end of the drive vacant for new files to be created.
(THERE SHOULDNT BE ANYTHING EXCEPT AT THE VERY END OF THE DRIVE AFTER A DEFRAG)

Utilities like CleanUp, CCleaner etc are fine for this purpose.
tidying up by deleting any unnecessary files and then running the defrag program.

The best thing you can do is use the WinME defrag its 10 times faster?
