Default me defrag.. drive contents changing [; ; winME]

sponsored links
When defragging my hdd it gets half way through and then says that the drive contents are changing and restarts the defrag from 0. I went into task manager (ctrl, alt + del) and closed all running applications except 'explorer'. is there something i am missing. Can anyone help....

thanks in advance

the built in defragger in windows stops and starts over again anytime that anything writes to the hard drive. try diskeeper lite you can find it at

I have the same trouble. There was a program that would let you see what's running in the background and let you stop or "kill" the programs, its name I forget... but maybe someone on here can help? I did have it on another computer some time it did the trick for me.. anyone?
