Re: vista and defrag
By default, it defrags every Wednesday at 1am. If your PC isn't on then,
it does it when gets turned on next.

You can set the time in Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>
Task Scheduler.

Re: vista and defrag
If you are referring to being able to just defrag without the other tune up
utilities - No.

Re: vista and defrag
Recommended method is all prog->accessories->system tools->disk defragmenter
to reschedule, not task scheduler, although this is what Disk Defragmenter
ultimately talks to.

The exe is dfrgui if you prefer win+R
