Can't help with your defrag problem, but you may need to add Ad-aware
to the Data Execution Prevention exception list. When I installed Ad-
aware it wouldn't run until I put it in the DEP list. This only
matters if you have DEP enabled for "all programs and services".

Re: Defrag Problem
defrag on vista runs in the background.
thee is no on screen information as to its progress,

you can check task manager to see if it is running.
