Hey guys, I kinda need some help here.
I just recently reformatted my pc and installed windows 7 Home Premium.
Today I come to find that the Disk De-fragment tool is not working. When I click it nothing happens.
I looked and found that the service is running, and I restarted it to be sure but still nothing. I have googled some similar problems but none had the answer I need.

Even if I go to %windir%\inf the file dfrg.inf does not exist. So this prevents me from simply installing it again.

Does anyone know what I can do?

Instal a 3rd party defragger such as Mydefrag, and see if that works.

If it doesn't than perhaps a system repair is in order. Cheers

Well I tried Defraggler and it worked. It just is weird how the default windows one didn't work. Oh well, thanks for the help guys.

We're assuming your drive is not a SSD. If it is a SSD, Windows won't run defrag on it. Defrag should NOT be run on a SSD. It does nothing for performance, and shortens the life of the drive.
