    Thanks but I already tried/ran that. See post #7. It runs fine, no component store corruption. Still have the defrag issues. So now I see at boot chkdsk /f runs fine but chkdsk /r makes my computer hang. It is starting to make me feel like 8.1 has been compiled with different languages that don't talk to each other or coded in some cases for specific hardware at the expense of functionality for basic PC desktops. There is nothing very complicated about the hardware in this system but 8.1 has made it very complicated.

    Hopefully this is the last chapter of my defrag problem which was down to 6% fragmented according to Windows 8.1 but I noticed from the Auslogic defrag screen that fragmented was 0% but of course I then noticed that swap file squares were not defraged. I set the swap file to no swap file, rebooted and ran auslogic again and then Windows 8.1 showed 0% fragmented. Ran scan now again and restore PC health and didn't notice any change. Set the swap file to automatic again and fragmented was then 3%. Few days back figured I should just run the Windows defrag analyze part again. Fragmented is 0%. Not sure why but must have been Brink's hands on guidance and tutorials and/or a combination of them.

    Thanks to Brink and the rest of you for your help. I still run auslogic hoping for no further defrag issues. Brink they need you on the Microsoft 8.1 forums. Those quick but quite useless text book support responses over there to defrag, network failures, mouse lag, corruption and other 8.1 issues are upsetting to a lot of users besides me who simply think they aren't being listened to especially when they already said they tried the steps earlier recommended by the "experts".
