HI , I HAVE THE HP Quick OUTSMART PC, THE PROBLEM IS I CAN NOT GET THE DISK DEFRAGMENTER TO RUN ON AUTO SCHEDULE, IT WILL RUN IF I DO IT MANUALLY. HAS ANY-BODY ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM, & HOW DO I FIX IT.
WOULD PREFER NOT TO DO A FACTORY RESET. P/S STILL IN WARRANTY ( JUST ABOUT ) THANKS DON.....

Do you have Vista or Win 7? If so, the defragmenter usually runs during idle cycles and does a pretty good job keeping your machine contiguous.
I work for HP.

Have you looked whether the 'Defrag on schedule' is checked? I personally dont like the Vista defragger and use a proper fully automatic defragger that defrags in the background and has a nice graphic display.

HI CHRIS, THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR INTEREST, YES, THE DEFRAG IS CHECKED, I HAVE TRIED EVERY-THING TO GET IT TO RUN,WITH-OUT SUCCESS.
SO HOW DO I INSTALL THE OPTION, YOU MENTIONED, HOPE ITS FREE !!!.
DO I HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE ORIGINAL PROGRAM, ?.
HOW DO I FIND NEW, ?.
P/S IM A NOVICE O.A.P.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, DON...............

Hi anyone, I have noticed other programs, that have stopped working, which may, or may not be related to the problems im having, perhaps somehow my setting have changed. IE autofil & screen saver photos,
I fill in a competition, daily, sometimes the autofil will work, other times not.
The screen saver used to display a slideshow of photos, when the p/c had been idle for the set amount of time, this also has stopped working, even though i have reset it .
I have reset all 3 items several times, ie disc defrag, screen photos, autofil.
odviusly something, setting or what-ever has changed, can not find any info on help & support window.
none of these items really matter, its just annoying, & they should work,
thanks, for any advice.. don...
