disk defragmenter

HP Recommended
hp p6837c
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I received this message when I attempted to do a disk defrag:


"Disk Defragmenter was scheduled using another program"

Disk Defragmenter is currently using customized settings created by

another program.  Before you can modify the schedule, you must

remove the customized settings."


I click "remove settings" button and nothing happens.


What may I do to remove this so I am able to do a disk defrag?

Only God knows which tool or tools you installed on your computer which is/are holding the process. Your machine may catch a malware too. Please try
