    When I go to run the Defragmenter in Vista Home Premium I get the message:
    "The Disk Defragmenter is not installed on your computer. To install it
    double click the Add or Remove Program icon in the Control Panel, click
    Install/Uninstall tab and then follow instructions on your screen."

    First off, the control panel/ add or remove programs is not even set up that
    was. There is no option that I can find to install Defragmenter. How do I
    get defragmenter back?

    I'm afraid what might have happened is I had Disk Keeper 10 installed from
    the origianl XP that was running before upgrading to Vista and Disk Keeper
    was not compatible with Vista so I uninstalled it. Apparently it took the
    Vista defragmenter with it. How can I get the Vista defragmenter back?

    Thanks

    I did that already - I think that is what caused the problem to begin with.
    How do I do this? Will I lose my driver updates and stuff?

    Thank for your help.
