Windows 2000 defrag and Certificate stores

Posted on 2004-11-18

When I run Defrag I get a message box:
"The certificate stores could not be enumerated.  The system cannot find the file specified."

I am running Win 2000 sp4.  Reinstalling is difficult since the CD is Win 2000 sp3, so it will not "upgrade".

How can I get the certificates stores problem resolved?

I tried the repair step 5 times.  No success.  Any other ideas?

Which defrag tool are you using, the built-in one or another?

built-in.  In as much as I want to defrag, the core problem of the certificate stores is my main concern.
I could get a 3rd party tool to defrag but lets treat the cause first.  Any ideas?
