Hi,

1) The company policy setup for a computer includes "automatic Defragmentation" during logon
2) Some of the clients do not like it.
3) How to skip this "automatic defragmentation"?

First place to look is the startup folder in windows for all users, the command to defrag is probably in there.  Should be in a .bat file.

What operating system?

These computers are set like that to keep them running properly.
Clients have a bad habit of blowing off system maintenance which is why the company chose to do this automatically.

Tell the clients if they disable this then they will have to bring the system to your office for 1 day a month so you can do this maintenance.
Somehow I think putting up with a scan on boot won't seem like such a big problem any more.

Try this   Open Scheduled Tasks from Start Menu, Accessories, System Tools.
you must see a task name defrag if so then right clik over it and chose delete.
If there is not a defrag named task check if created with a different name in this case check for a task pointing the defrag s path.

What exactly is being defragged? Is this a boot defrag or is this defragmentation of the OS and the registry hives?

There are a couple of solutions here. If it's a 3rd party tool, please inform us what tool it is. As posted in a previous post this could run as a task with minimal configurations.

I think it's not defrag but chkdsk the asker is meaning.

Is it?

gdrew1Commented:
Running chkdsk or scandisk after very power-up is going way overboard and is really unnecessary. This feature should only be invoked by a bad shutdown or suspicion of bad/dirty sectors. Why would anyone do this is beyond me.
