Hi. For some reason today I noticed that the defrag button is
disable and text saying 'No defragmentation tool is currently installed'.
Even though my defrag desktop icon opens the defrag window and
seems to work fine. Any ideas?

Thanks,
James

How about Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Defrag? Can you
run Defrag from there?

Yes. It runs from the desktop and from Start > Programs > Accessories >
System Tools.
I ran the kelly's-korner reg fix with no success.

It's all better now. installed the .inf file.
But I was wondering how this happened to begin with?!
Why the msc file was working fine through a desktop icon and accessories.

Thanks Ramesh and PA Bear,
James

Installation of third-party defrag tools may have broken the DefragPath in
the registry.
