There's one built in to Windows that works fine. Start>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter

Have you checked out any of the options suggested in the Hard Drive & System Utilities section of the Freeware Replacements topic?

Like sflatechguy, I find little reason for dissatisfaction with Windows own defragmenter, however if I want one that defaults to a quick operating mode and still has a display of little boxes showing you what it's doing, I also lean towards AusLogics. Note however that its quick operation is partly due to its less thorough default settings.

 

Just one caution if you use any third-party utility - be careful of options in the installation procedure, most now offer to install extra software which may be unwanted or undesirable, or promote other software packages. AusLogics showcases other products from the company, which IMO is not in itself a problem, but may be best disregarded, and purely utilize the defrag function.

I just want to point out that Windows 7 automatically defrags your disk throught the task manager. It's every Wednesday by default.
