How would I schedule the graphical GUI Defrag program in Windows XP.  The file is located in:


I know how to schedule the defrag.exe program but was wondering if there was a way to do it with the dfrg.msc.  Are there any / or - commandsto use?? Example:

%SystemRoot%\System32\dfrg.msc /f

%SystemRoot%\System32\dfrg.msc -f

When I schedule it with no / or - commands the defrag program starts but the defrag does not begin "defraging" it just sits there.
