I'm not sure, may be it can't be defragmented because it's important files or in use. Just a suggestion though, I'm not totally sure.

Give this a try:
|MG| O&O Defrag Professional Edition 12.0.197 Download

Free for 30 days, but well worth the price to keep. O&O can defrag down to 0% fragmentation for you.

I use Piriform Defraggler, it's free and it does a great job, it shows you a lot more info than the Windows one (which gets worse each new version of Windows for some stupid reason) and it defrags to 0% most of the time, if you have restore points or operating system files in use it has to skip these (easy way is to just delete old restore points you'll never need to free up space and get rid of the fragmented files in them).

really? everytime I defragment with it, it goes down by like 1-4% and that's it (last time went from 25% to 21% :| )

Tuneup Utilities 2010 works awesome combined with CCleaner . That's what I use, and the disk defrag that comes with it usually defrags the whole system.

I've always used Auslogics disk defreg. It's decent, free, and it was originally the program that Windows XP used as defacto. I also use and like Diskeeper Pro, but it isnt free.
