Hi LenAb,
The vast majority of those are system restore points that wont defrag because the restore process is running, stop the restore process (of disable system restore (warning this removes the restore points) then defrag and THEN re-enable system restore, that will shrink the list by about 90%

You can also try using Diskeeper (http://www.executive.com/defrag/defrag.asp) which allows you to schedule defragmentation after reboot (before all the system services load).

If you prefer free tools, try these:
