Degrag Problem

What is the problem when, as I run the Defrag process, it won't go any further than 2% complete (even going back to 0% and 1% at times)? I left it on all night and it never got past 2% complete.

Thank you.

do you have other programs running in the background?
win9x sucks at defrag, if you have any applications open at all.
its best to shut down everything.. antivirus, firewall, screensaver, etc.. when you run defrag on win9x
