I tried this in safe mode also & still quits with same message. This is
normal or another one of Microsoft's famous bugs?


db.·.. >

there are some system files
that microsoft won't defrag,
like your master file table
(MFT) and i think the page
file won't be defragged as well.

there is a nifty utility called
pagedefrag from microsoft.com
and with it you can defrag
the pagefile and the registry
upon each bootup.


another suggestion i have
is to split your harddrive in
half and move all your personal
files off the system drive (c) and
onto the new partitions (d).

this will be more helpful with
managing your disk and file
