I found this on Microsoft's pages:
You need to re-register the defragmenters snap-in files, and the basic registry entries.
First open up a Command Prompt, this can be found at:
Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

Change into your windows\system32 directory. Your windows directory will be either windows or winnt. Type:
cd \windows\system32
Register the defrag components, by typing:
regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll
regsvr32 dfrgui.dll

At this stage, you may find the defragmenter works. If not, there is one more step you can do.
Using Windows Explorer browse to your windows\inf folder.
In there you will find a file called dfrg.inf right click this file, and select Install.

You could also try doing it in Safemode with the screensaver turned off. I don't know if it's as big a deal as it used to be with '98

It looks related to the regsver code.

You don't have enough free space on the C drive.
