The defrag problem can have numerous possible causes. Also, there's more than one issue going on here (and a lot of the answer depends on how your system was built to begin with). So, we’ll tackle these problems one at a time. A couple of scenarios could cause you to be unable to defrag your hard drive, and each of them is very specific. 1. The main key here is that you said this happened after you did an update. The best way to see if it was that particular Windows XP Hotfix is to uninstall the actual Hotfix that caused the issue. To achieve this, go to Start > Setting > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and scroll down to find the Hotfix that is under suspicion and uninstall it, then reboot the computer and try to run defrag again. If you aren’t sure which one it was, you will have to do this process multiple times until the computer is back to normal. You can always go back to Windows Update and download them again if you inadvertently removed one that was not causing the issue. NOTE: It is a BEST PRACTICE to download updates one at a time to avoid this issue in the future. Be sure to read the known issues with Windows Service Pack 2, before you update to that. Windows provides a lot of information at this webpage: WINDOWS SERVICE PACK 2: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;EN-US;windowsxpsp2 2. Another common issue that causes you not to be able to defrag a hard drive is if you have “ bad sectors” on your hard drive. Bad Sectors are areas on the actual hard disk that is either physically failing or has bad data written to it. It used to be detected & fixed by Scandisk on previous versions of Windows, but has been replaced by “Checkdisk” on Windows XP. CHECKDISK: Goto My Computer, Right-Click the hard drive you want to check, select Properties > Tools then under Error Checking click the “Check Now” button. A dialogue box opens, select Fix File System Errors and click Start. This can take a while, so be patient.

Uninstall Norton. Seriously. It's pretty lousy. Get AVG, Avast, kaspersky or something else apart from Norton or McAffee. After that, run chkdsk, to scan for and recover file system errors. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265 Then, assuming you have no hardware problems, you can do the following to fix your PC performance. (1) Run a FULL anti-virus scan with a good virus scanner. Use the latest virus definitions file. (2) Run anti-spyware scans with Spybot S&D and malwarebytes. (3) Ensure all Microsoft security updates are applied. (4) Run disk cleanup to delete old temp files and other junk (5) Run a thorough disk defrag. Use a good defragmenter for this, and also run a boot-time defrag to fix the MFT and page file if they are fragmented. You can check out Diskeeper 2009, which is widely acknowledged to be the best defragger around. Their website has free 30-day trial versions. http://www.diskeeper.com (6) Disable unnecessary background processes and services that take up memory. (7) Make sure all the hardware components have the latest and most stable drivers. Video card performance in particular is strongly dependent on drivers. Good Luck!

Try to start up in safe mode with networking. Then download malwarebytes anti-malware: http://malwarebytes.org/mbam.php Run a quick scan and it will remove all the infections no problem. If malwarebytes will not run in safe mode with networking then chances are no antivirus program will. Don't pay attention to those scanners that pop up, they are the virsues themselves. If malwarebytes will not run then it's at the point of no return and you'll likely have to format your hard drive and re-install your OS.
