I checked my 'system' drive on the Windows 7 defragmenter application, and found out that said drive was 60% fragmented. That seems to be a problem. 

Of course, defragmenter will not allow me to defrag the 'system disk', so what can I do, what will happen if I do nothing and the system disk becomes more and more fragmented, and what should I do? 

My Windows 7 is about 3 years old, and I guess except for cabs, I have no copy of the Windows 7 system files (I was not given hard copy of the Windows 7system files on a DVD when I purchased the computer system). I have, however, made a DVD to boot up the computer if my Windows 7 application is unable to.

A possible reason why you cannot defrag your is because it does not have at least 15% drive space free. So can you download a program called Speccy and then run it then go to file and publish snapshot. Post the resulting link here.
