32-bit XP to NTFS disk defragmenter

is it possible update available with xp pro version 1.0 Disk Defragmenter there must be a version update available.  I tried the Diskeeper and they do not have a 32-bit 64-bit version. What are my options to get a better or more recent version of Disk Defragmenter? I am a student and all my software for xp pro or I would be upgrading to windows 7.  Another problem I have is that I get a message or a popup that wishes to upgrade to IE8, even if I am running of Internet Explorer 8. Any suggestions as to why I get it quickly.  Cannot install malicious software update tool tent also said avaialbe it's like an update then give me the installtion of the message failed. Another problem is .NET Framework have 1.0 but do not accept updates gives the root certificate error message.

I think that Diskeeper Home comes in a version that supports 32 and 64 bit.

  • Disk Defragmenter does not not on MY Windows 7 (64-bit)

    Hi, I have not been able to defragment my new laptop of the I received (4 days ago)... The software works, and when I say analyze or defragment the completion % is displayed, but the report never comes... I never see how much there is fragmentation on the hard drive... I never get a report after analysis or defragmentation...

    Any help is greatly appreciated...

    Type Disk Defragmenter in the search box above the Start button and press ENTER. What do you see?

    When Disk Defragmenter is then scheduled to run? When it was last run and what was the percent fragmentation?

  • I am unable to run Disk Defragmenter.

    When I try to defragment I get an error message that says: "cannot run because Disk Defragmenter scheduled Chkdsk /f..  If please run Chkdsk and try again. "I tried to run Chkdsk, nothing helps.  Can anyone help?

    It's a shame that we don't know anything about your system, or you would be probably done now (it's not your fault), so the first response to a new problem is a bunch of questions.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The question was preceded by a loss of power, aborted reboot or abnormal termination?  (this includes the plug pulling, buttons power, remove the battery, etc.)

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

    What usually ends up happening, is that you will need run your chkdsk/r from the XP Recovery Console.  That's the short answer.

    If you do not have a bootable XP installation CD authentic where you can boot into the Recovery Console, you can create a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console and run chkdsk /r from there (no media XP required).

    On your question (simple copy/paste for me and a lot to read, but you will understand things when you're done and prevents you from losing time trying ideas that will not work):

    When you try to defragment a volume of that Disk Defragmenter reports:

    Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: (c :))
     
    Please run Chkdsk /f.

    This means that the volume that you want to defragment was marked 'dirty' XP.  This is not necessarily all of the data has been lost on the volume, it simply means that XP thinks that the volume should be checked to find errors because of something that happened before.

    You won't be able to defragment the volume until the dirty bit has been removed.

    This does not mean that a disk check is scheduled to run, and you can't cancel what needs to happen in this case because this isn't the problem.

    Also the dirty bit is not set on a volume, you can still run a disk defrag with a record of date of arrival in the meantime (try).

    Entry of commands to reset or erase a disc awaiting review is therefore a waste of time - that is not the problem.

    A volume can be marked as dirty, if the system underwent a power interruption (power failure, pulling plug, removing the battery, button / stop), abandoned restart or an abnormal termination.  One of these events?

    When XP starts, it automatically checks the bit of impurity on each volume.  You can also tell XP to ignore the bit of impurity on any volume, but this probably isn't a good idea in case there is a real problem that needs to be fixed.  If you have a hard drive where the dirty bit will not disappear, you can tell XP not to check.

    If the starting XP detects that the volume is dirty, it will be automatically run the check disk with error correction (chkdsk/r) and try to fix the problems detected.

    If the chkdsk command succeeds, it clears the dirty bit, and then you can defragment the volume.

    You can check the status of your bit of impurity from a command prompt window.

    To do this, click Start, run and enter in the box:

    cmd

    Click OK to open a command prompt window.

    For example, to query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

    fsutil dirty query C:

    The sample output:
    Volume c is dirty
    Volume C: is dirty

    You cannot use fsutil or chkntfs from a command prompt to delete the bit of impurity on a volume.

    The only thing that can clear the bit of impurity on a volume is chkdsk /r (or chkdsk/p).  You could tell XP not to check the bit of impurity on a volume where the dirty bit does not erase, but this probably isn't a good idea since there is some sort of problem on the volume.

    You also won't solve this problem by editing your registry database - not where is the problem.

    Once a volume is marked as dirty, the only way to clear the dirty bit is to run "chkdsk/r" or "chkdsk/p" when the volume is not in use.  The only way a volume can not be used while XP is just starting to load or from the XP Recovery Console.

    If XP will not run chkdsk correctly when your system restarts or the dirty bit will not erase as it should, you need to look in the Event Viewer log chkdsk and see what is happening and fix it.

    If XP will not always clear the dirty bit, you need to run chkdsk/r of the XP Recovery Console so you can look and see what works and run it again until it works.  If your hard drive fails, you may never be able to clear the dirty bit, in this case, you can also say XP never check the afflicted volume dirty bit.

    Saying XP not to check the bit of impurity on a volume would be risky behavior because there would always be some kind of problem with your hard drive.

    You can manually program the disk with error correction check to run at the next reboot of the system, but if the dirty bit has been set, XP should run check disk automatically with error correction during the next reboot.

    This is usually the case that after a reboot, the problems will be resolved since XP will automatically run check disk on the Sales volumes when it restarts.  If you do not check that the chkdsk results of newspapers after his execution on a restart, you will never know what problems are corrected or remain.

    When you choose to run the check disk with error correction in the Tools menu of disk properties, you will be prompted with a message similar to the following:

    The disk check cannot be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk
    .
    These files can be access only by restarting Windows.  You want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time that you restart Windows?

    Answer Yes, if you want to schedule the check disk on the next reboot of Windows.

    When you choose to run the check disk with error correction in the command prompt window, you will be prompted with a message similar to the following:

    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock the current drive.

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.  You want to schedule this volume to be
    check the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Answer Yes, if you want to schedule the check disk on the next reboot of Windows.

    When XP restarts, let the disc over to check and correct the problems, he could find.  Do not interrupt the disk check.  It can take a long time (hours or days) to complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive light flashes, it's something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

    Is there a problem with the chkdsk command that works on reboot and it doesn't really seem to do something (too fast) or not to clear the dirty bit (check the dirty bit), the command chkdsk which took to restart results in the Event Viewer Application log.  Look there to see what happened.

    When chkdsk runs automatically reboot, you may wonder where to find the results.  The results appear in the Event Viewer Application log.

    You will need to get there after the disk check performed and XP has finished loading for the results and all the problems.

    To view the logs in Event Viewer, click Start, settings, Control Panel, administrative tools, event viewer.

    A shortcut to the event viewer is to click on start, run and enter in the box:

    %SystemRoot%\system32\eventvwr.msc

    Click OK to launch the event viewer.

    Look in the Application log for a proposed Winlogon event, something like this successful race:

    Event type: Information
    Event source: Winlogon
    Event category: no
    Event ID: 1001
    Description:

    Checking file system on C:

    The type of the file system is NTFS.

    A disk check has been programmed.

    Windows will now check the disk.
    39070048 KB total disk space.
    25151976 KB in 78653 files.
    48256 KB in 10264 index.
    0 KB in bad sectors.
    237080 KB in use by the system.
    65536 KB occupied by the log file.
    13632736 KB available on disk.

    Windows has finished checking your disk.

    If you see errors - same errors that are corrected, you must run the disk checking with correction of error again (chkdsk/r) until you see no error.  You should have no errors.

    If you need help interpreting your event, post it here for analysis.

    If you double-click on an event, it will open a window of properties with more information.  On the right are black up and down arrow keys to scroll through the open events. The third button that looks like two overlapping pages is used to copy the details of the event in your Windows Clipboard.

    When you find an interesting event that occurred at the time of your question, click on the third button at the top and arrows to copy the details and then you can paste the details (right click, paste or CTRL-V) the text in detail here for analysis.  Remove all personal information from your information after you paste If you are forced to do so.

    If the chkdsk command that runs on every reboot XP does not clear the dirty bit, you must run chkdsk/r from the XP Recovery Console and see if that will clear things upward.  It is a good idea because you can watch chkdsk as it works and see the results on your screen instead of looking in the event viewer connects or wondering what happened (she also just 'feels' better when we see that it works).

    If you have no authentic XP bootable installation CD to boot into the XP Recovery Console, you can create a CD bootable XP (no XP media required) Recovery Console, and then run chkdsk /r manually.

    Need instructions on how to create a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console to run chkdsk/r manually?

  • Impossible to prevent (dfrgntfs.exe) Disk Defragmenter to run during System Idle

    How can I prevent the Disk Defragmenter Windows (dfrgntfs.exe) tool to launch automatically when my Windows Vista machine is idle?  I defragment my hard disk with IObit Smart Defrag software and do not want the Windows defrag utility constantly re-organization of the files on my hard drive once I optimized the placement of files with Smart Defrag.

    I checked the Windows Disk Defragmenter tool (start |) All programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Defragmenter) and regular defrags are disabled (i.e., the checkbox "Run on a schedule" is disabled).  I checked Windows Task Scheduler (start |) Administrative Tools | Task Scheduler | Task Scheduler Library | Microsoft | Windows | Defrag) and the task of ScheduledDefrag also appears as disabled here.

    My hard drive is formatted with the NTFS file system and my Norton Internet Security 2010 software Norton tasks window shows that dfrgntfs.exe starts about 30 minutes after my system goes into "idle" mode.  Is there another tool of Windows running in the background (for example, the Windows search indexing) which can be automatically trigger the Windows Disk Defragmenter?

    I hope that there is a simple configuration change or registry change that will stop the Windows Disk Defragmenter to run while it is idle, but still lets me run a manual defragmentation if I want to do.

    Lorien - one:

    Thanks for the quick response.  I'm failry certain that the ScheduledDefrag task in Windows Task Scheduler is not the culprit.  This task (and trigger) show that off and the task history shows that a regular defrag last ran on my system there is, over 2 years which is the time that I have disabled the checkbox "Run on a schedule" in the Windows Disk Defragmenter tool.

    I found a post today in the My Digital Life Forums (http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/1910-DfrgNtfs.exe-in-Vista-SP1) which suggests that there is a Vista boot optimization process that runs defragments dfrgntfs.exe whenever you reboot your system, even if in the application are disabled.  Is recommended that a response to stop dfrgntfs.exe to run after every reboot:

    1. open the Windows registry (run > regedit)
    2. go to path
    3. change the "Enable" key of Y to N

    I found information on the Start function to optimize on the Microsoft TechNet Library website (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc778290 (WS.10) .aspx) which States that "Windows automatically optimizes for the optimization of startup file location. This optimization happens automatically if the system is idle for 10 minutes. Start optimization improves the start-up time to locate the startup files in contiguous clusters on the volume, reducing the movement of the head of the disc during playback of the volume".  I have no idea if third-party defragmenters like IObit Smart Defrag or Defraggler of Piriform can optimize the placement of these Windows startup system files or Boot Optimization provides some additional benefits to the performance of the system.

    I don't know if the Boot Optimization function is actually the cause of my origins unscheduled defragments but it's the only reasonable explanation I could find.  When these "silent" defragments happen on my system, they occupy more than 50% of my CPU and will last more than an hour (or until my system is idle).  I had problems with my system of freezing after it goes into idle mode (i.e., move my mouse or using the keyboard has no effect and I have to do a re-difficult start by turning off my laptop) and I begin to suspect that if this unscheduled defragmentation runs along with other tasks in the background (for example (, my daily QuickScan in Norton anti-virus) that a page conflict or lack of system resources could freeze my computer.

    I would appreciate hearing of a person who can confirm that the Boot Optimization function will trigger unforeseen defragments when Vista is idle or knows if the Boot Optimization function is all real benefits if you use a third-party Defragmenter.

  • I can not defrag.my PC, it is constantly in a X box [Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled

    complete the question was in my title.thank you

    When you try to defragment a volume and Disk Defragmenter reports:

    Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: (c :))
    Please run Chkdsk /f.

    This means that the volume that you want to defragment was marked 'dirty' XP.  This is not necessarily all of the data has been lost on the volume, it simply means that XP thinks that the volume should be checked to find errors because of something that happened before.

    Also the dirty bit is not set on a volume, you can still run a disk defrag with a record of date of arrival in the meantime (try).

    A volume can be marked as dirty, if the system underwent a power interruption (power failure, pulling plug, removing the battery, button / stop), abandoned restart or an abnormal termination.  One of these events?

    To do this, click Start, run and enter in the box:

    For example, to query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

    fsutil dirty query C:

    The sample output:
    Volume c is dirty
    Volume C: is dirty

    Is the volume of your sale or it is not dirty?

    You cannot use fsutil or chkntfs from a command prompt to delete the bit of impurity on a volume.

    The only thing that can clear the bit of impurity on a volume is chkdsk /r (or chkdsk/p).  You could tell XP not to check the bit of impurity on a volume where the dirty bit does not erase, but this probably isn't a good idea since there is some sort of problem on the volume.

    You will be not also solve this problem by editing your registry database (pay attention technical support engineers and moderators of Forum)-is not the problem.

    Once a volume is marked as dirty, the only way to clear the dirty bit is to run "chkdsk/r" or "chkdsk/p" when the volume is not in use.  The only way a volume can not be used while XP is just starting to load or from the XP Recovery Console.

  • Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the Volume: C:. Please run Chkdsk /f.

    I know this question has been asked several times, but I did these steps and still not get Defragmenter to work.  My Disk Doctor said I don't have problems with my Defragler work program - but I don't have a C: drive not 'dirty '.  I have Windows XP Home Edition and do not know how to run an XP Recovery Console.  Y at - it an easy way just to get the Defragmenter to work?... when I run Chkdsk... It goes through stages and then closes and the problem is still there.  Defragmenter just stopped working, my computer everything works fine.  Help, please.

    Hmmm...  It should only take a few minutes for ImgBurn to create the bootable XP Recovery Console CD, then maybe one of the songs that you have downloaded (xp_rec_con.iso or install IgmBurn) won't quite right.

    You want ImgBurn to play a happy tune when it is successful and a "Oh no!" message when it fails, but it shouldn't take hours to burn this ISO file bit.  You can try another system.  You can always uninstall ImgBurn when finished.

    I say 'be patient' when you run the chkdsk /r command because sometimes it seems to be stuck (or even go back), but it should end later.  Depending on the volume size, the amount of data on the volume, the speed of your system and what the chkdsk finds to do, you can watch several hours.

    Look at these words from the mouth of Microsoft:

    If you use chkdsk /f on a drive or drives for very large (for example, 70 gigabytes) with a very large number of files (for example, millions of files), chkdsk may take a long time (for example, over several days) to complete. The computer is not available during this time because chkdsk does not relinquish control until it is completed.

    At the time of this writing, I'm guessing a disc 70 GB was "very large" but it is quite modest by today's standards.

    Now with today's technology, it is unlikely to take days, but it could still take some time!  If your HARD drive is afflicted with a problem material and dying, it can never finish or be unable to fix things.

    To start XP, it automatically checks each volume to see if it is dirty and will try to run chkdsk from the afflicted volumes.  Sometimes, it's good enough to clear the dirty bit, sometimes it isn't.  You will see a message at startup if the volume should be checked for consistency and XP will do the best.

    That's exactly what the message tells you:

    Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: (c :))

    You can query the dirty bit on a volume from the command prompt window.

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    cmd

    Click OK to open the command prompt window.

    To query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

    fsutil dirty query C:

    The sample output:
    Volume c is dirty
    Volume C: is dirty

    Type "exit" to close the command prompt window.

    If you are suspicious of your HARD drive and think it might be failing, now would be a good time to backup your personal data (documents, pictures, music, etc.) to an external location - a separate attached USB drive or a few clouds on the Internet.

    This means that the volume that you want to defragment was marked 'dirty' XP.  This is not necessarily all of the data has been lost on the volume, it simply means that XP thinks that the volume should be checked to find errors because of something that happened before.

    You won't be able to defragment the volume until the dirty bit has been removed.

    A volume can be marked as dirty, if the system underwent a power interruption (power failure, pulling plug, removing the battery, button / stop), abandoned restart or an abnormal termination.  One of these events?

    When XP starts, it automatically checks the bit of impurity on each volume.  You can also tell XP to ignore the bit of impurity on any volume, but this probably isn't a good idea in case there is a real problem that needs to be fixed.  If you have a hard drive where the dirty bit will not disappear, you can tell XP not to check.

    If the starting XP detects that the volume is dirty, it will be automatically run the check disk with error correction (chkdsk/r) and try to fix the problems detected.

    If the chkdsk command succeeds, it clears the dirty bit, and then you can defragment the volume.

    You can check the status of your bit of impurity from a command prompt window.

    To do this, click Start, run and enter in the box:

    cmd

    Click OK to open a command prompt window.

    For example, to query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

    fsutil dirty query C:

    The sample output:
    Volume c is dirty
    Volume C: is dirty

    Is the volume of your sale or it is not dirty?

    Since XP of course already thinking that the volume is dirty, XP will automatically run chkdsk when it restarts to try to clear the dirty bit, in order to plan another running chkdsk can not help you much.  Sometimes the auto chkdsk on a reboot will be not only clear things to the top, but you can try it.

    I would like to start in the XP Recovery Console and run chkdsk /r from there you can actually watch and see what happens and decide what to do about this.  When own running chkdsk/r, it clears the dirty bit unless your HARD drive is somewhat distressed.

  • Chkdsk Disk Defragmenter error.

    Try to run disk defragmentation, when I hit Analyze or Defragmenter, I get an error window that says: "Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (c). Please run Chkdsk /f."I ran the Chkdsk program, restarted, but still the same message. Can anyone help?

    I am running Windows XP.

    Hi rooneytune.  You posted in the Windows 7 Forum, but I'll try to help anyway.  I don't know that a moderator will move this topic when it will be considered.

    You can have what is called a "dirty bit" located on your volume.  This can happen for various reasons, one being an abnormal termination.

    Lets you know.  Go to start > run and type:

    cmd.exe

    and then click ok.  A command prompt will open.  Type the command after the command prompt and press enter below:

    fsutil dirty query c:

    He pointed out a little dirty?

    If so, type the command below and press ENTER:

    chkntfs /x c:

    and reboot.  This will stop chkdsk to run at the next reboot.

    Once you have restarted, open a command again and type the command below and press ENTER:

    CHKDSK c: /f /r

    Reboot again and chkdsk should run all the 5 steps and hopefully clear the dirty bit.

    If a dirty bit is not reported, just try the last step I posted.  Good luck.

  • Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (c)

    My computer is as follows: 2.80 ghz, 4 Pent, Intel, HP d530 SFF (PB603a)

    I am running Windows XP PRO SP3. v2.18

    1. When you try to defrag my computer to speed it up i get: DISK DEFRAGMENTER has DETECTED THAT CHKDSK IS SCHEDULED TO RUN VOLUME C: Please RUN CHKDSK C: /F

    I'll then: run cmd, then type chkdsk C:/f/r and I get: THE TYPE OF FILE SYSTEM IS NTFS. CANNOT LOCK THE DRIVE CURRENT.

    CANOE FOR CHKDSK TO RUN BECAUSE THE VOLUME IS IN USE BY ANOTHER PROCESS. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SCHEDULE THIS VOLUME BE CHECKED THE NEXT TIME THE SYSTEM IS RESTARTED? I selects Y and I roboot system, but nothing happens. I do not get a blue screen or any other people say they get.

    2 error Checking: select two options (Auto trouble & scan and attempt recovery of bad sectors. I get the following error message:

    WINDOWS COULD NOT PERFORM THE DISCK CHECK

    These errors appear when I am logged in SafeMode as well. I'm about to become bald of pulling my hair because of the frustration it causes me. If anyone has any ideas can you please help me.

    Did you insert a space between "C:" and "/ F"?  It is not clear in your answer.

  • Loss of power during disk defragmentation

    I used the Disk Defragmenter in Windows XP on a volume formatted to NTFS and during a defrag of my external hard drive, the power went off in my house all of a sudden (I triggered a circuit breaker). When I got the power back on, the drive seems okay, but I scanned the disc using Chkdsk in Windows. I checked "Automatically fix errors" and everything he said after it was done was "Disk Check in line." My hypothesis is that the file system is in good health, but the loss of power during defragmentation might affect the files on the disk?

  • Run Disk Defragmenter has released more than 30 GB of free space!

    I'm not used to run Disk Defragmenter Windows very often, but in recent weeks I have been through the very large import of my cd collection process on iTunes. My 'C' drive has a capacity of 222GB and I was at 9.68 GB of free space. I ran WDD but after 18 hours, he had still not finished! So I decided to cancel defragmentation, and after checking my 'C' drive, I found to my great astonishment that I now had 42.8 GB of free space! Then, I downloaded the DiskDefrag Auslogics free and running. She performed in a few minutes and showed the Windows defragmentation had done most of the work but for some reason any had not finished. Anyone know why?

    I have decided to disabled Windows Defrag and will use in the future, the Auslogics version he gives information about the status of the defragmentation and seems to be much more effective and faster.

    However, I am very surprised by the amount of free space that freed the defragmentation process. I searched on various forums of pc and other posters have said the complete opposite to my own experience. The common consensus seems to be that defraging reduces the amount of free space on a drive rather than increase it!

    There also seems to be a difference of opinion on the amount of free space should be left on a hard drive to allow the computer to function effectively. I was a little more than 4% before I defragmented but I saw messages advising that we should let betweeen 10% and up to 50% (which seems to me to be silly!)

    I would be grateful for any help anyone can give me, in particular, why the defragmentation released (in my case) as much free space.

    A common mistake in logic. You assume that two things are related, because they are close in time.

    Defrag does not change the amount of disk space. It only increases or decreases the free space or used.

    Windows defragmentation runs every three days and optimizes the program and load the system boot. This is not controllable. It is also not a defragmentation of data file.

    Using another Defragmenter will fight with Windows.

    NTFS (and FAT32) resist fragmentation. Most fragmented files are log files and will fragment 1 second after defragmentation.

    Windows only writes files where there are a lot of space to write prevention of fragmentation. Do not fragment the files that do not change. Disk cache makes the fragmentation irrelevent.

    Any recommendation on the free space are based on the best estimate on the way an average person uses a computer. Lack of free space does not work computer until it has zero. However, most people like to save their work and some Windows watchdog is going spastic, just before that you can't do anything.

    As to why you have noticed a change in the use of the disc.

    1. system restore - this could be it.

    2 disk Cleanup - it will take place in itself is space is extremely low

    3 log files are created, deleted, written, etc.

    4. Windows automatically repairs physical disk errors. If defrag was having problems, you can check there is no car repair files.

    It's a way see what may have disk operations occurred.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories - right on command prompt and choose run as administrator. Type (or copy and paste by clicking in the command prompt window and choose Paste).

    When you use "Defragment your hard drive" the process starts but seems stuck and won't end evn after several hours.  How I can remidy this? I was already able to defragment successfully.

    Hello

    How do you know that never, it ends when there is no GUI on Vista for Defrag?

    in vista, the defragmentation process works silently in the background

    Unfortunately in vista it does not provide a GUI to show progress as it did in xp

    to do this, you'll need 3rd party defrag programs

  • My family for vista disk defragmentation program premium will not fix. How can I solve this?

    When I put the calendar for defragmentation, good times are displayed.  When I log out and then log back on "next regular time" is listed as EVER.  I can't seem to accept the most updated schedule.  When I google this question, I see that it is a common problem for owners of Vista Home Premium

    Hello

    Run the sfc/scannow command.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Use the (SFC.exe) System File Checker tool to determine which file is causing the problem and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click principally madeprograms,Accessories, right-clickguest, and then clickrun as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or clickallow.
    2. Type the following command and press ENTER:
      sfc/scannow

      The sfc/scannow command analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions

    If SFC detects the main problems it can't fix you may need to borrow a Microsoft dvd vista not an acer, HP etc. recovery disk and do a repair installation
