Windows XP?

right click on Local Disc ('C')

Properties

You now have Disc Cleanup

and under 'Tools' on the top bar you have...

Error Checking (this sorts out your hard drive and makes it go quicker) :D

Defragmentation (this sorts out your hard drive and makes it go quicker) :D

go to http://www.processlibrary.com/processscan/ download the tool there which is certified by microsoft, the tool will investigate your computer then it will put all the details on an interactive web page, where you can click on any process that you think is susspect, and it will show you all the details and its threat level.
Also the http://www.processlibrary.com default scan is brilliant for fault finding on someone else's computer who doesn't want to install the software or if your at work.

Over a period of time the files on your pc become jumbled up, think of it as a book with the pages in the wrong places. The pc slows down because it looks for a file which isn`t there and has to go hunting your hard drive for it. If you open defrag there is an analyse button you can click which will tell you whether you need to defrag, but its wise to do it once a month anyway as basic maintenance.

Cheers Slick, so I just click defrag and it does it automatically then?
