I don't know if "suitable" is the word I would use for the stripped down version, but you have a defragmenter program in Win9x. If you go to MY COMPUTER/right click on the drive you want to DEFRAG/ go to PROPERTIES/TOOLS it should be there.

You can buy several utility packages that have their own "defrag", I have found that usually the toolbox approach causes more issues than it resolves

the defragmenter on my computer after 10% is defragmented  freezes the computer and  I have to press ctrl,alt and delete keys to get the computer working again that is why I want to download another defragmenter. It does this every time the defragmenter is used.

I don't believe that DEFRAG is the cause of the problem.

I would run SCANDISK on the drive you are trying to DEFRAG, then delete anything in your C:\windows\temp directory. If DEFRAG still goobers up, reboot the system in SAFE MODE and run DEFRAG.

let us know how it goes

I have tried what you suggested but it still doesn't
work. Have you any other thoughts on the defrag?
Should I delete temporary internet files as well.?

I would delete those as well, just because they seem to have an cubed growth rate.

I would also run SCANDISK/THOROUGH (depending on the size of your hard drive it may take a while, I usually choose a time when I will be out for a while), and see what comes up

check your STARTUP folder and see if it is automatically loading Microsoft Find Fast, if so remove it (its a crappy program designed to do nothing but slow the system down). If you do find it, also go to the control panel and open the Find Fast Icon, delete any index's

reboot and run it normally, see what flies
