The defragging software with Windows is just fine, there is no need for any 3rd party defraggers. Many of them perform the same tasks as Windows Defrag.

And anything that says defragging your pagefile.sys file speeds up your computer is lying to get you to use their software. Your page file is emptied every time you reboot, and if you have adequate RAM your pagefile.sys file will not be used thus eliminating the need to "defrag pagefile.sys".

Also it is best to allow Windows to manage your pagefile and to keep it on the same drive as windows is installed on.
