Default Defrag questioon

I have an old desktop comp that runs real slow and disk activity "seems
excessive"
by "disk activity "seems excessive"" I mean I see the disk access light and
hear the clicking longer than I'd think it should.

xp pro version 2002 sp2
intel pent 3, 601MHz, 384 mb ram

i've run disk defrag many many times this am and it still has lots of white
lines, red lines among the blue bands
(white = unused, blue = contig, red = fragmented, green = unmovable)

I've run defrag at least 50 times this am and it now only spends a few
seconds "compacting and moving" and very lttle has changed in the
display....I was hoping to get mostly blue on the left side and mostly white
on the right side...seems like it would take a 1000 times to get there at
this rate....

If i do analyze instead of defrag it says does not need defragged....

is this just a hopeless case and i have to accept the current state or is
there a way to automate defragging so that i could leave it repeating all
day and hope to eventually get to a cleaner state???

thanks
mark

ps i also have avast home edition and malwarebytes...both report clean
system
