How much free space do you have on the hard drives you are trying to defragment?

You need a minimum of 15% for the defragmenter and other Windows functions to work properly.

Try this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com/

In addition to checking for viruses, it will also defrag your hard drive (and will check your registry also).
