This is likely due to a permissions issue where the drive we are attempting to defragment does not have System and Administrators credentials listed with FULL CONTROL.

To repair this, you may employ the command below to apply those permissions to the volume from the root on down.

1. Bring up a DOS prompt by clicking Start -> Run and typing the CMD command. 2. Go to the root of the drive we are having difficulty with 3. Type CACLS * /e /t /c /g Administrators:F System:F 4. Press ENTER and this command should start to go through each of the files on that volume.

Note: This same command is also used in the SetDKACLS.bat command file and is found in the directory folder where Diskeeper is installed. Example: C:Program FilesDiskeeper CorporationDiskeeper

After this has completed and the file security permissions have been added, you should find that Diskeeper will handle the volume properly.

I want a shareware software to fix virtual memory. My laptop is too slow so i need something that will fix the virtual memory


The virtual memory is the Pagefile.sys in C:\
To defragment the pagefile, we first have to remove the pagefile, then defragment the machine, and finally recreate the pagefile. To do this, start by opening the System utility in Control Panel. (You may have to get there by clicking Performance and Maintenance from the Control Panel and then clicking System.) Then select the Advanced tab, click the Settings button under Performance, select the Advanced tab of Performance Options, and click Change to view your Virtual Memory settings:
Now select the No Paging File option and click Set. This will disable paging entirely and should also remove the pagefile (pagefile.sys) from the hard drive the next time you reboot your system.
If it doesn't do this, you can delete this file manually after rebooting. It's normally found in C:\

Reboot your machine, and when Windows comes up, use Disk Defragmenter to defragment the volume where your pagefile was previously (C: drive normally). Once your system is defragmented, open the Virtual Memory box again, and change the pagefile back to System Managed Size, OR set both the min and max to same size, 3 times your actual ram. This will help prevent the page file from becoming fragmented.
Then, reboot your machine again.

Note that one Gig is 1024 MB example: 3x1024=3072

If you find your pc still has issues, or the fragmentation gets worse, it likely you have malware or even virus on it that's creating the slowness issues. These should be cleaned out too.

I have a acer laptop with pre loaded 64 bit windows 7 OS. Now i want to make a partition on my hard disc. Pl. guide me on how to make partition


From start go to control panel > administrative tools > computer management > disk management, then right click your drive and select "shrink volume". From the resulting unallocated space, right click it and select "new simple volume". It's best to defrag the drive first: start > all programs > accessories > system tools > disk deframenter.

I had to replace my hard drive and now when I install the program Roxio Creator 2011 my computer does not let me open the program. Is this the fault of Windows XP Professional or is it a Roxio problem?...


  1. Please be sure that you have met the system requirements of Creator.


  2. Defragment your hard drive. This will allow larger files that you have created to be more easily read by the program and allow more efficient writing of data for video and audio capture to your hard drive. To do this:

    • Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.
    • In the Disk Defragmenter window, select the drive (a.k.a. volume) you wish to defragment.
    • Note the Free Space column. If you have less than 10% free space available you may run into issues defragmenting. Additionally, the drive is too full to capture any new media to it. Doing so may result in the hard drive crashing and data loss. Unless more free space can be safely made, it is recommended that you purchase an additional hard drive just for your multi-media projects.
    • Click the Defragment button.

      NOTE: If frequently using your computer for recording and editing audio and video, defragmenting your hard drive on regular basis (about once a month) is recommended.


  3. Contact your video card manufacturer for the latest video card drivers. If you purchased your computer as a complete system (like Dell or HP), then go to the manufacturer's website for the latest drivers.

    If you purchased your video card separately, then you will need to find out your make and model and go to the video card manufacturer's website to download.
    • Windows XP: Go to My Computer and choose Properties.
    • Windows 7 and Vista: Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager.
    • Click on the Hardware tab.
    • Select Device Manager
    • Double-click Display Adapters. You're video card make and model is displayed.
    • To find out the driver details (such as version), right click on the make and model under Display adapter, and select Properties.


  4. If running Easy Media Creator for the first time, or it's been a while since you used it, RoxWatch will require a few minutes to index your hard drive for new audio, video, or photo files. This allows Media Manager to create a convenient list of all the files you can create projects with in a single window. Once the indexing is completed, Easy Media Creator will launch faster only looking for newer files. However, if you wish to disable this function, do the following:

    • Windows XP: Go to Start -> Run -> and then type "msconfig" and click OK.
      Windows 7 and Vista: Click on Start -> type "msconfig" in the Search field and press Enter on your keyboard.)
    • In the System Configuration Utility window, select the Startup tab.
    • Locate RoxWatchTray10 (or whichever version you are using) under the Startup Item column and uncheck it.
    • Click Apply and then OK.
    • Reboot your machine.
    • On reboot, you will receive a dialog from the System Configuration Utility. Check the box at the bottom of the window requesting not to see the dialog again and click OK.
    • Launch Creator.

My defrag program says it is unable to gain access to selected drive. It says another process may have the drive locked???


you need to close all open programs and reboot before you defrag
if you want a clean reboot go to start remove all programs from the startup file so nothing is in the background, if McAfee is in your start up file, it will prevent you from a complete defrag
start/all programs/startup click and drag each file in the startup back to all programs and then do a new reboot
