    The problem with your system may have varied reasons which are explained below :

    1. You may have HDD media problem which the Defragmenter is unable to surpass.
    2. There may be system file errors.
    3. Primary Memory Can be another reason.
    4. Utility software might be a reason too which is corrupt.

    Your system is too old for everything to go smooth, but for a fix do the following.

    Click Start, type cmd and press Enter,
    Right click CMD,
    Select Run As Administrator,
    Type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
    Let the utility scan and fix system file errors.

    Now after finishing the checking run Disk Defragmenter and probably be successful in that.

    Try that measure.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............................

    1.The System defragmentation will remove all unnecessary files and also compress your disk space.

    2.It stucks because some of the files related to your OS may be corrupted.

    3.So that process is not moving to solve this problem you once perform error checking of that drive.

    4.You can perform it by go to that drive properties and later on restarting your system.

    5.At last you try to repair your OS files to fix this problem.

    Have a nice day............................
