I downloaded and installed Diskeeper Lite with the honest intention of trying it for a couple of days and then buying it. A good job I didn't.
After installation I tried to 'run' it but received the error - 'Snap-In failed to initialise'.
I tried System Restore, three times, each time going further back. Diskeeper vanished but XP Defrag failed to re-materialise. I also cleaned up the registry with JV16.
I sculled around the 'Net and found two fixes:
Click on Start, Run, and enter regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll.
Click on Start, Run, and enter regsvr32 dfrgui.dll.
If this doesn't resolve the problem, try Method 2.
Didn't work, so on to Method 2
Click on Start, Run, and enter %windir%\inf. This should open a folder named Inf.
Locate the file named dfrg.inf (it might be listed as just dfrg.)
Right-click this file and click Install.
Didn't work either.
I also tried re-registering the defrag dll. The system was unable to find the dll, even though it was in the i386 folder where it was meant to live, and told me so. So, possibly courrupted?
So, now I have no Defrag utility at all. Anyone got any ideas please?
