To defrag, assuming you have windows xp, simply, click start > all programs > accessories > System tools and choose the disk defragmenter.

Ah Vista, sorry can't help you there. I ditched Vista in favour of Linux, I figured it would be easier to learn a completely new system than deal with Vista.:D

Why not just go back to XP anyway, it'll run a damn sight better than Vista anyhow. Or you could be daring and try Linux. Linux Mint 5 is a good distro few newbies.:D

I have got into the habit of making Zip file backups of all my stuff weekly, that way I can do a system restore at any point. The beauty of a Zip file backup is it can be read by any machine, with any OS.

Try using "defraggler" it's free and works better than the windows one.
How much s/w do you have firing up on startup, reducing that makes heaps of difference too.

Start > run
type 'msconfig' and press ok

Under the startup tab is a list of all the programs that start every time you boot up, there may be some you don't need.

Mine has a printer manager, Google update and a Nero check program that I don't need, for example.

Can I point out to everyone, that now would be a good time to check you have a running AV program and some spyware remover, of course most of the people that need to do this, will of course not bother, therefore we continually get threads like this.
