    Free PG 3.150 since 2 days back - and I love it!

    Defrag.exe wants to start "out of the blue" meaning I did not push any button.
    When I allow it I never see anything of it - defrag does not start. o_O

    Whats au_.exe? Some sort of update?

    Best Regards
    Rivalen

    Hi Rivalen, Yo wrote
    Windows XP does defragging when your PC is not busy, this is normal on some machines but not on others for some reason :) I'm not sure if there is a way for this to be turned off on those machines that do it but I am sure others will advise.

    As for au_.exe you're welcome to zip and email it to the email address in my profile. Before doing so perhaps upload it to http://virusscan.jotti.org (a good place to be your first visit when unsure!)

    Does anyone know what the process Au_.exe is??

    I have a computer that shows Au_.exe and Bu_.exe taking up 99% of the system.

    Any idea what they are from??

    Is it not bad for hard drive to be defragged all the time? I have a similar situation see my post at https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=607385#post607385
