A bearing, bushing or other rubbing surface has worn or dried out, or the brakes have worn down to the wear sensor. Either way, it's not a good thing. If the noise changes pitch when you touch the brakes, it's probably the brake wear sensor, get the brakes fixed right away. If not, it could be a dry wheel bearing, U-Joint (if your car has them), serpentine belt or who knows what else. Try to localize the sound. See what's causing it. Noises like that shouldn't be ignored.

Do you have to be online to defrag a computer?

No! In fact, it's best that you're NOT online while doing a defrag. Anytime defrag hits a part of a hard drive where the information is changing, defrag restarts doing that portion of the drive.
