Problems Defragging Windows Xp



I am using windows xp service pack 2 is installed. The newest version of
Internet explorer 7 is installed. Have all the latest updates. Problem is
when I defrag my computer as it is running slow, it only defragments about
half to three quarters of it and comes up saying that it is not able to
defragment all of it. I tried msconfig to see what in my startup not that
many there. I tried using the windows xp check disk utitility to check for
bad sectors and chdisk. I also tried in safe mode and came up with the same

Here is a view of my report about defragging my computer.

The pagefile can't be defragged and I'm not sure why you are getting 'None'
in regards to files not being defragmented.
