That was true, but I'm sure I've read that the Vista defragger does work in
the background and runs when it determines that the disk needs
defragmenting, so in effect it is doing so unprompted from the user - but
maybe that's done when using Live OneCare (an add-on product) rather than
just Vista itself.....?
