4. The program will defrag un- til it gets all the files in as much of an order as it can, while it is defragging you will see the program in action in the form of two graphics with various lines of color.  Continue on to the next image.

 5.  The next screen will pop up after the computer has finished defragging the hard drive. Click on CLOSE and continue to the next screen.

6.  The next screen that pops up is the original screen. Click on DEFRAGMENT again and again until this process takes less then 1 minute to complete.  That way you know it is really defragmented. The following two images show the result from beginning to end.
