Tried all posted suggestions, but Defraggler not Defraggling very much

And that was after 12 hours of Defraggling! I know that some Defrag programs take multiple runs to fully defrag the drive, but these usually finish within 30 minutes or less. I figured if it was taking 12 hours to complete (about 1% every 7 minutes), it would have been completely defragged! Is this common?

You didn't state you ran the BootTimeDefrag as suggested. This defrags pagefile.sys and some other system files before Windows loads.

Whoops! Thanks for that! Also, I apologise for all the recent questions, but I appreciate you answering all of them so quickly!

I'll admit most of these files only have 2 or 3 fragments, the top of the list is at 432 fragments. I'm assuming it is because these files are in use by programs running in the background, windows services, dll's attached to windows system applications... ultimately there's no way I can turn off EVERY program that is accessing files on the harddrive. Is there a boot-version of Defraggler that will run off a USB key or something, so that the entire drive can be defragged while not in use at all?
