defrag RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Has anyone found that you can't access (rearrange items) in Performance and Maintenance on the control panel,

    When I do I get this message>windows cannot find 'C:\Program' .make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search?

    I put it in the search and a lot of files came up but I could not find one that matched. 

    I not sure what to do next?

    I wanted to defragment the disk before I switched on the disk protection in steady state.

    Can anyone help.

If yes, this can be Windows Vista issue. I suggest you post the issue to the following newsgroup to resolve it in a timely manner:
