i installed defraggler but uninstalled it cause it takes forever to defrag. i want to go back to windows xp disk defrag. however after uninstalling defraggler, i caint find the original windows xp disk defrag.

going to start/ search defrag only brings up the help topics. i can bring it up using my computer/local disk (c:)/properties/ tools..

how can i find it and make a shortcut icon of windows xp disk defrag on my desktop so i can boot it easy?

Click on start, then navigate to  - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk defragmenter.  Right click on disk defragmenter, select create shortcut.

Now you can drag the new shortcut to the desktop.  :)

Just my curiosity, how did you start defragmenter before?

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

If that shortcut that login123 mentions in the above post is also gone, here's how to re-create it from scratch:
 

1. Click Start->Run and paste in:

%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools
 
Then click OK, so that it opens the folder where the shortcut is supposed to reside in by default.

 

2. Create a New Shortcut with the Target field ("location of the file"):

%SystemRoot%\System32\dfrg.msc
 
3. Name the shortcut:
Disk Defragmenter

Nice, Andavari. 

As Tasgandy says, you're never too old to learn. 

I didn't know how to do that, now i do. 

Saved it to a txt file.  (No chance I'll remember it tomorrow :P )

Thanks.
