Yes I have several different Spyware apps. Webroot SpySweeper, Ad-Aware SE, Spy Doctor, Microsoft Spyware Beta. As mentioned before one never gets it done lol. I also have Norton System Works which runs really well and checks my system while I'm sleeping then gives me the report in the Morning. I do need to defrag my computer. I was thinking of trying a program called PerfectDisk(ain't free which sucks). In my family's house we have about 7 Dell computers ranging from 10 years of age to 1. My computer always has zero problems and runs the fastest out of anyones. I only browse with Firefox, IE is the devil honestly. The rest of my family just doesn't get why they shouldn't use IE even after I plead with them.
I do indeed agree with you, itd be nice it was true tho
You also run disk defragmenter:
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter
It will open up a list of your drives. hughtlight C:\ by clkicking on it, then click defragment on the bottom. It usaully takes a few hours. so do it overnight. Also have you downloaded and run a reputable antivirus plus a spyware/malware scanning application?
Also click start, click run, and type cleanmgr in the box that pops up. make it clean C:\
Itll scan for files, then ask you what to clean. Check all the boxes and then click ok. Itll really clean up your drives.

I fully disagree as the Defrag that seems to run the best that I have ever seen is one called "O&O Defrag" It's not free but it is great. You can read about it here --
I dont reccomend using a 3rd party application to defrag, its ultimately useless it doesnt defrag "better" than the windows one it jsust comes with the options of scheduling a defrag.

Ah but see that is where your wrong it doesn't do the exact same thing that the built in windows does. It really defrags the harddrive!
Why in the world would you waste money on an application that does the same exact thing as the windows built in defragmenter?

You can also automatically defragment your hard disk, although it doesn't need to be done as frequently as cleaning up your hard disk. Open Scheduled Tasks, and double–click Add Scheduled Tasks to start the Scheduled Task Wizard. When you get to the list of applications, click Browse, and navigate to windows\system32\defrag.exe, and click Open.
