My C drive is really fragmented. When I use the defragmenter tool in Windows
XP Home Ed it does very little to deframent the drive. Any help would be
appreciated. Thanks.

Do your defrag in Safe Mode. To get to Safe Mode, repeatedly tap the F8
key as the computer is starting up. This will get you to the right
menu.

You probably need a better defrag tool. Consider looking into
