Manual Defrag question

I have read several threads, but haven't quite found what I need.  So, sorry to "rehash" some of this.  I'm running Win 7 & Norton 360 v4.  I'd like to know how to do a manual defrag. 

 I've seen threads about just running windows defragger, but when I click on it it warns that "Disk Defrag is currently using customized settings created by another program. Before you can modify the schedule, you must remove the customized settings".. and there's a button to remove settings.. And not sure I should do that.

I'm also puzzled by where I can turn off disk defrag (optimization) in Norton 360 v4.  I don't have it running automatically, but I can find no taks or setting where I can "turn it off", and just use win defrag..

Any help is appreciated..

Re: Manual Defrag question

In Windows 7 (and Vista too) defragmenter set to run by default every week. You can check the schedule here: Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Scheduling, in the Scheduler window in the Microsoft -> Windows -> Defrag folder. Here you can change the time when to run it, how often, etc.

In 360 the setting is here:

1. Open main 360 window

2. Go to Settings -> Task scheduling

3. Uncheck the checkbox by Disk Optimization

4. Save changes
