Why does defrag analysis always suggest running degrag again?

I was running defrag on my W2003 Servers and after it defrag the first time, when I click to Analyze after the defrag, it suggests degragging again. Is this normal? Will it actually defrag again? Does it make sense to keep defragging until it does not suggest defragging? I had turned off all SQL Services and will not start them again until defrag is done. I have seen several notes about not applying 3rd party defrag utilities on a server. Is the Windows version sufficent or are there ones certified for servers?

Will try the suggestions. I had disabled all SQL services and just was wondering each time I ran defreag it would tell me to defrag again.
