My disk is partitioned and I would like to unpartition it. Is it possible? If
it is, I would like somebody explain it to me.
The reason I would like to unpartition it, is that it is now impossible to use the Norton utility optimization and because of that, my fragmentation is severe and it slow down my computer.
Thank you!!

That doesn't make any sense.
Norton is not working, so rather than resolve that problem, you are going to unpartition the drive?
Oh well, I'll just address what you asked then.
Format the HD. Easy.
I think FWB Hard Disk Toolkit can partition without data loss, so maybe it can 'unpartition' too. I dunno.
Why can you not run Norton?
Install systems on both partitions - boot from one, defrag the other. Repeat with other drive...
Oh yeah, get a better defrag tool too... like TechTool 3.

I can't see how that could be.

Are you booting form the Norton disk? If so, you should have no problem defragging each partition. Also, make sure you are running the latestr version of norton.
