I used a program called PageDefrag . . .
. . which does much of what you describe on reboot, but it found little to be done. I can see the MFT, it's right in the center of the disk where it belongs , all in one piece and is about the usual size. This big green lump is right at the beginning of the disk.
MFT is at beginning of NTFS disks, not middle.
Executive Software's DiskKeeper can defrag the MFT at boot time, too.
It also shows where your pagefile, hiberfile and MFT are.
