I had to get a new hard drive for my computer and now I can't get the defrag to complete its course. I've heard that it won't finish because something is running in the background. How do I find out which program is the culprit?
The best way to make sure NOTHING is running is to run it in safe mode. To get to safe mode, reboot your computer but you'll need to hit the F8 key before the windows splash screen. This will bring up a window that will give you a bunch of options. Select safe mode and let it finish booting. Once in safe mode you can do a defrag.
Thanks so much.
