"Need" is the wrong word. You don't really "need" to defragment. Having said that, it's always a good idea to defragment your hd. The OS is not relevant to this.

I'm not sure what you read or what is supposed to run in the background (perhaps you could post a link to that?) - but the short answer is yes - you should defrag the hd.

Allan is right. It's not necessary, though doing it every once in a while wouldn't hurt.

Hi there,

Used the Windows build-in defrag which is quiet good. You'll find lot of third party application that claims to do lot of things. I believe your referring to Defraggler from the same developers of CCleaner rite?
