If you're complaining about the large amount of space that is still fragmented after running a full defrag, slowlane already answered your question.
System Restore points are highly prone to fragmentation.
Take a look at Defraggler on my netbook after a recent defrag (4 days):

Do you know what the Malware (freebie) name is?
I really don't know what a malware is and what it does, but I will check into that.

You are right. There is a setting for this.
If you notice, it just so happens that my current percentage of fragmentation is equal to the percentage that I have set to allocate for System Restore points.
If pat71896 deletes all saved Restore Points, and the fragmentation drops like a stone, then we know that was the problem.
No malware that I know of tries to slow computers by fragmenting the hard drive. Besides, why would it? If wouldn't have much affect on performance. You'd be better off trying to get a ransom (pay this or else) or turn it into a bot-net computer. Intentional fragmentation by malware is just completely illogical.
