    When I try to run defrag in WinXP home I get the following message


    Microsoft Management Console
    MMC cannot open the file
    C:\WINDOW\SYSTEM32\dfrg,msc.
    This may be because the file
    does not exist, is not an
    MMC console, or was created
    by a later version of MMC.
    This may also be because you do not
    have sufficient access rights to the file.


    How do I fix this problem

    Start> Run
    Type sfc /scannow
    Follow the prompts from there.

    Also, Run Windows Update and apply all critical updates and patches.
