Thread: Power Defragmenter; Anyone Tried This? It's Very, Very, Fast

  1. #41

    Best defrag, and other speed inducers?

    What is the best, hopefully free, defragger? And what else is recommended to run very week to help mintain my laptops performance?

    I know there is a ton of stuff on here I dont use, its a ne laptop, but I a unsure what I can safely delete. Should I ring it somewhere and have them look at it, or would one of those services that can work on your comp/laptop from online, while your on it be able to do it?

    DkLite is also good but is nearly as slow on XP as is the windows defragger. With XP, the defragging programmes seem to have slowed down but a considerable amount.
    I have no idea why but I still use DkLite and start it before going to bed. Then it will be finished in the monring. I also use Zone alarm free version and set it to stop all internet traffic whilest defragging overnight so our happy little hackers don't have a machine to try to break into while the owner is sleeping.

    Its a brand new machine and there are all sorts of programs that I dont use nor will I ever. I am unsure if other programs relyon them to operate though.

    If they are just programs that go to control panel and add/remove programs and uninstall them.

    Yes I realize this but some of them pop up a warning that this may effect the use of other programs....wish to continue? Thats the problem I dont want to mess up any other programs while uninstalling these ones.

    Is this still considered the best defrag out there, two years later?

    When asking this question it helps to include the main of the program you are refering to.

    Nothing in disk cleanup should affect your use of the system.

    Hey look at that, I forgot to type a word while trying to make fun of you not typing one

    You asked:

    "Is this still considered the best defrag out there, two years later?"

    Is what?

    When you highlight office set-up it says......

    It is recommended that you not remove these files unless you have access to the original installation media.

    Eh I think its good.

    Perfect Disk I rate as the best

    O&O as #2

    But both of those cost money and if I remember right, power defrag doesnt.

    Do you have the original CDs? The setup files will let you reinstall office if you need to, not important if you have the office CDs, if you dont have the office CDs, then those files become important.
