    8. Click Open
    9. In the Scheduled Task Wizard dialog, type a name for the scheduled task (Disk Defragmenter, for instance)
    10. Under Perform this task, select how often you wish Disk Defragmenter to run
    11. Click Next
    12. Set the time at which you wish the Disk Defragmenter scheduled task to run. This should be a time when your computer is on, but not in heavy use.
    13. Select the frequency at which you want the Disk Defragmenter scheduled task to run (Every Day, Weekdays, or Every <N> days, where <N> is the number of days between scheduled runs)
    14. Click Next
    15. Enter a user name under which the Disk Defragmenter scheduled task will run. Note: This user must be an administrator on the local machine.
    16. Enter the password for the user you entered in the previous step
    17. Confirm the password for the user
    18. Click Next
    19. Check Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish
    20. Click Finish
    21. In the Run text box, you should see the full path and command for defrag.exe. By default, this path isC:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\defrag.exe
    22. Append the drive letter for the drive you wish to defragment to the command in the Run text box. In a default installation, your Run command will look like this:
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\defrag.exe C:
    23. Click OK
    24. In the Set Account Information dialog, enter and confirm the password for the user listed in Run as
    25. Click OK

    Disk Defragmenter will now run as the specified user on the schedule you specified when you created the scheduled task.
