Windows ME defrag isn't working. When I turn it on the meter tries to move but is still trying four or five hours later. It used to work fine. I have a 40g hard drive with 640 Ram, 128 just installed.
To do this, copy the following into a text file and save it with the filename DEFRAG.REG (make sure you have file extension display turned on in Explorer to do this correctly). Double-click on it to enter it into the Registry, then reboot. The next time your system loads, it should run a full defrag pass without stopping.
