Hi, I have window XP pro version 2002 service pack 2, Dell 8400
I got a little computer problem.
I lost defrag in my start, all program, accessories, system tools, defrag.
Also lost it in start, my computer, right click local disk (c:), property, tools defrag.
When I click on the defrag in either area this is what I get in a pop up blue box..
Microsoft Management Console
MMC cannot open the file c:windowssystem32dfrg.msc. This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file.
But if I go to Start Run type in, Compmgmt.msc Then click on, Disk Defragmenter
Then it'll run this way. My question is, how in the heck can I get itback and recognized in those first two areas that I mentioned? It hasalways worked in there, and I haven't a clue as to why it is no longerbeing recognized. Can you help me out????

I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck
ok i am making a lot of assumptions here, you didnt tell us your operating system, but can i guess your running norton antivirus. close it if you are. remember some antivirus's have a defrag in them this may be interrupting the process. let me know
RIGHT CLICK on the drive you wish to defrag.
left click PROPERTIES
this will bring up a pop up screen
left click TOOLS tab along the top of this pop-up screen
left click DEFRAGMENT NOW
left click the drive you wish to DEFRAG
last one click DEFRAGMENT
Hope this helps you out. If so please leave a thumbs up.
right click my computer, go to properties, then advanced, click the settings button under the proformance selection, then click "adjust for best proformance", this will remove alot of effects you dont need that will make your computer run faster.
