Unhappy My Defrag is Down

When I try and run my Window's defrag it tells me I have another defrag currently working (even though I don't) and it can't run two apps at one time.?!?

FYI: I also have an executive disckeeper defrag installed


Any Suggestions???

the version of windows would be helpful.
If its xp you can run the defragmenter and multitask at the same time-Maybe your executive diskkeeper is running in memory. Loaded at boot time.

I'm running window 2000.

It would seem it does load @ boot time, b/c it makes no difference if I shut down or not.

I get the same msg if I run microsoft defrag or the disckeeper defrag?.

All I can say is pick one to use. If you want the windows defragmenter-uninstall the other.
