Hmm weird, that report suggests to me its worked fine

I wouldn't worry about it.

Though because for instance Windows is all the time using programs, and so writing to the disk, this can occur, and is somtimes best to defrag over night with no programs running, and also in safe mode possibly to minimize programs being used.

Though it seems it has compltely defragmented anyway...

i hope this helps

I wouldn't worry about it Eunice since its defragged and you shouldn't have any issues with it.

Though to enter safemode for next time, or to solve some PC issues you might encounter, you simply press f8 at bootup, and select safe mode

I hope this helps

reboot and toggle the F8 key at post and this will get you to the start page and there you will selct to start your computer into safe mode.

note**** that is standard xp setup, some manufacturers have started to pre program this to a different key so it is always safer to check your manufactures site for this information.
