" THIS STEP ABOVE DID THE I read the info here and went straight for the windows\inf folder. "In there you will find a file called dfrg.inf right click this file, and select Install."

Please try again now or at a later time. Lots of restore points from past month, but nothing happens after selecting restore date and clicking "Next".WindowWasher will also not work now, just hangs.Tried sfc /scannow, did not solve anything.Everything else Under Virtual Memory select Change. After I removed this from my c:\windows\system32\drivers directory and fdisk/mbr the system came up, said it found a new device and defrag now runs without the message!

Again THANKYOU. Once I did this Defrag started working again. Less discombobulated than before 13/04/2005 2:29 p.m. #re: How To: Fix Windows Built in Defragmenter All I can say is: YOU RULE!!!!! YOU RULE!!!!!

I don't know how the Page file got turned off on my system but this has been driving me mad for months!! You need to re-register the defragmenters snap-in files, and the basic registry entries. so did that and still nothing. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down.

If that doesn't work then you're pretty much looking at what Hopalong suggested, a repair install. It says windows firewall cannot be displayed cause the service isnt running Cannot install windows XP because initial slave drive is missing or corrupt what could this mean Moved my xp

YOU RULE!!!!! http://strobelfilms.com/disk-defragmenter/disk-defragmenter-could-not-start-windows-xp-home.html So i tried it on my External and it started to Run. It worked for me. (note: this was not a recovery from an uninstall of an independent defragger)
