    Default Can't access disk defrag or system restore?

    Hi,
    Can anyone help I am trying to defrag my ‘C’ drive, before turning on the
    disk protection in steady state.
    When I go into control panel>performance& maintenance>rearrange items on
    hard disk I get this message-
    “Windows cannot find ‘C: Program Make sure you typed the name correctly,
    then try again .To search for a file click the start button and then click
    search”.
    I have done this and a lot of files come up but none match what I want.
    Also if I try to use the system restores function it will come on but I can
    no longer select any date on the calendar for it to revert to.
    I have uninstalled steady state and the same thing still happen I have ran
    the free pc scan from Microsoft and it has repaired a lot of registry problem
    and still I can’t get the two Items working dose anyone know what the
    problem could be?

    I think you are missing some components
    Open CMD as Administrator...run this command

    sfc /scannow
    it scan your system n restore the all missing binaries.

    To defrag any drive. Go to Drive Properties and move to Tools tab.
    and click on Defragment Now...

    Choose appropriate drive and try to start.

    Type rstrui in Run dialog box and hit enter to Launch System Restore Wizard.
    OR
    Go to Control Panel >> System and Maintenance >> System
    Choose System Protection from left pane and pass the UAC prompt.
    Here choose appropriate option to launch System Restore.

    Thanks Ramesh,
    System restore is working now but defrag is a different matter when I try to
    defrag any drive in Properties and move to Tools tab and click on defragment
    Now this message comes up,
    “Defragmenter is not installed on your computer” where do I go to get it
    back on.
    I am using XP pro with sp3 installed.
    Regards,
    Martin.
