Cannot run "Contig" (defrag tool) as Admin on Vista
 
I have a Vista Ultimate on my system. I want to defrag some specific
directories/files, so I have downloaded "Contig" (sysinternals toolset)
from the Microsoft site. When I try to run this tool as normal user I
got "Access Denied" message. I have logged in as the System
Administrator and got the same "Access Denied" message.

How can I run the "Contig" tool on Vista? What are the proper settings?

Thank you in advance.

What specifically are you trying to defrag?

Hi Neil,

Click start, type CMD and right click the entry that appears in the start
menu. Choose "run as administrator". Run contig from this elevated prompt.
