    This files can't be defragged when windows is running because this files are
    in use by windows.
    If you are using defrag software that support boot time defrag like
    PerfectDisk then it is possible to defrag this files when windows starts
    (while this files are still not used).
    It is possible to defrag this files also from another OS (Windows) if you
    have more then one OS installed.

    Yes. Here is a freeware tool to do it:

    Third party defragmenters like Diskeeper can perform such defragging. In
    some cases it needs to be done by a boot time defrag, which the XP defragger
    does not offer. Google Diskeeper and you can download a trial version to
    see how it suits you.
