Hi,

Is this with Windows Defrag, or a third party one?

Is C: an SSD or an HDD? Please provide as much details as possible.

Try the command line version, defrag c: /a /v. You can do this from either a standard or elevated CMD prompt, although I recommend the latter type.

Are you an Administrator or Standard User?

If an Administrator What Anti-virus do you have?

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
