Thanks, David

I performed the fix you linked to - it appears to have worked.

Now I'll see if Defrag runs at the next scheduled time.

Thanks Ztruker for your help.

That helps me to visualize what I should be seeing - I'll wait until after the next scheduled Defrag run and see what is logged.

Thanks Ztruker - how can I determine why it's not running as scheduled?

Will it not run unless fragmentation is over a certain threshold?

Defrag: Last run?

I have defrag scheduled for 0300 every Wednesday.

The Current status: window reads (C:) Last Run 2/13/14.

Does that mean that's when Defrag last ran or when Analyze disk last ran?

Thank you!

Thank you, gladson1976 - is there a way to make the images original size?

It appears that the Slide Show Gadget allows images to display in two sizes and the larger size is still quite small.

Thank you for your response. I already tried what you suggest, but that centers my image. I do not want it centered.

And, if possible, I would like to be able to choose which monitor it's on.
