i want a shareware software to fix virtual memory. My laptop is too slow so i need something that will fix the virtual memory


The virtual memory is the Pagefile.sys in C:\
To defragment the pagefile, we first have to remove the pagefile, then defragment the machine, and finally recreate the pagefile. To do this, start by opening the System utility in Control Panel. (You may have to get there by clicking Performance and Maintenance from the Control Panel and then clicking System.) Then select the Advanced tab, click the Settings button under Performance, select the Advanced tab of Performance Options, and click Change to view your Virtual Memory settings:
Now select the No Paging File option and click Set. This will disable paging entirely and should also remove the pagefile (pagefile.sys) from the hard drive the next time you reboot your system.
If it doesn't do this, you can delete this file manually after rebooting. It's normally found in C:\

Reboot your machine, and when Windows comes up, use Disk Defragmenter to defragment the volume where your pagefile was previously (C: drive normally). Once your system is defragmented, open the Virtual Memory box again, and change the pagefile back to System Managed Size, OR set both the min and max to same size, 3 times your actual ram. This will help prevent the page file from becoming fragmented.
Then, reboot your machine again.

Note that one Gig is 1024 MB example: 3x1024=3072

If you find your pc still has issues, or the fragmentation gets worse, it likely you have malware or even virus on it that's creating the slowness issues. These should be cleaned out too.

disk defragmenter not done


You are trying to defrag the defrag program. Try this instead. Unfortunately, two downloads are required. The first is contig.exe:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897428.aspx

it is a 100 KB file. The second file is power defragmentor GUI and is 409 KB: Download it at:

http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Power-Defragmenter-Download-20185.html

Create a Pwr Defrag folder and extract the zipped file there. Save the contig.exe into the same folder. Make a shortcut to the Power Defragmentor application and put the shortcut on your desktop or where ever you choose. Run the GUI and select the drive to defrag. There will be an option screen next. I use the last selection, Power Mode.

This is the BEST defrag program I've found.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works for you.

Tried a few defrag programs and some of the files won't defrag


Try using the free AusLogics Disk defrag program (http://auslogics-disk-defrag.en.softonic.com/) If that does not work, you can download a free trial of Perfect Disk Defrag at http://www.perfectdisk.com/home. This program allows you to not only defrag large files, but also consolidate free space, schedule when you want to defrag, and select the files you want to defrag. These are two of the better defrag programs out there. Auslogic also makes a good registry defrag located at http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-defrag/download. They all work great and are good to have. I use them.
