I had not noticed you had taken your private email off, I agree a good idea if you are unable to answer posts that arrive.

What do you mean what am I going to do? If you mean defraging my system, I will use O & O Software to defrag my system once a month. Now I know Windows defrag is no longer is on my system that is my only option? I will uninstal Diskeeper as I don't like it... no one else seems to either. What do you think of it?
I will also take a look at the following two sites you gave me -

My class instructor told me never to believe the XP Disk Compression tool if it tells you that you do not need to compress your hard drive. The tool was built for much smaller hard drives then are present today. Can someone recommend a freeware compression utility that is designed for todays large hard drives.

To solve my original question on page one of this thread I have uninstalled Diskeeper 10 Professional. Windows defrager has now put itself back in start/accessories/systemtools. SO way back before buying Diskeeper 10 Professional I was advised not to. This has all been a learning curve for me. The best lesson I have learned is - if I ask for an opinion, when given, take the advice in most cases. I should have listened to my learned advisors point of view earlier. Thanks
