Exclamation Disk Defrag error

when i try to run disk defrag i get an error that says "Disk Defragmenter could not start." I also tried to run it in safe mode and same thing happens. I've set the paging file sizes, ran chkdsk and I have 35% free space. I've ran multiple virus scanners to make sure it wasn't a virus either. So now im in a spot to where i have no idea what to try next. Anyone know how to fix this?

By the way its for the c: drive im trying to defrag

Have you tried booting from a live-eval Linux CD and running a defrag? Or maybe booting from a cd with Ultimate Boot CD for Windows installed and running defrag on your HDD from there?
