Have you tried a freeware defrag program? www.softpedia.com has many good programs for defraging and most are pure spyware free and double checked to make sure no malicious software is attached to their freeware

How to defrag on acer extensa 5620


You can use the built-in Disk Defragmenter to Defragment your system.
To defragment your hard disk
  1. Open Disk Defragmenter by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Disk Defragmenter, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.
  3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Once Windows has finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 10%, you should defragment the disk.
4. Click Defragment disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

How to speed up your computer's performance?


<p><b>Information:</b><br /> <p>There are some few guidelines that you can follow to maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. <br /> <p><b>Free Up Disk Space</b><br /> <p>By freeing disk space, you can improve the performance of your computer. The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk. The utility identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.<br /> <p><b>Use Disk Cleanup to:</b><br /> <p>&bull; Remove temporary Internet files.<br />&bull; Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).<br />&bull; Empty the Recycle Bin.<br />&bull; Remove Windows temporary files.<br />&bull; Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.<br />&bull; Remove installed programs that you no longer use.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.<br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>To use Disk Cleanup</b><br /> <p>1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p>Disk Cleanup calculates the amount of space you will be able to free.<br /> <p>2. In the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p>Choose the files that you want to delete.<br /> <p>3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.<br /> <p>4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes. <br /> <p>After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner and performing better.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Speed Up Access to Data</b><br /> <p>Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.<br /> <p>Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.<br /> <p><b>Run Disk Defragmenter</b><br /> <p>In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals, optimally monthly, certain events warrant running the utility outside of the monthly rule of thumb.<br /> <p>You should run Disk Defragmenter under the following circumstances:<br /> <p>&bull; You add a large number of files. <br />&bull; Your free disk space nears 15 percent. <br />&bull; You install new programs or a new version of Windows.<br /><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>To use Disk Defragmenter:</b><br /> <p>1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Click Analyze to start the Disk Defragmenter.<br /> <p>2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment, and then click the Analyze button.<br /> <p>After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.<br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.<br /> <p>3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment button.<br /> <p>After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.<br /> <p>4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.<br /> <p>5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.<br /> <p>6. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, click the Close button on the title bar of the window.<br /> <p><b>Detect and Repair Disk Errors</b><br /> <p>In addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.<br /> <p>As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.<br /> <p>If you use your computer daily, you should try to run this utility weekly to help prevent data loss.<br /> <p><b>To run the Error Checking utility:</b><br /> <p><b>Important:</b> Be sure to close all files before running the Error-Checking utility.<br /> <p>1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.<br />2. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.<br />3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.<br />4. Click the Check Now button.<br />5. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>In most circumstances, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.<br /> <p>6. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.<br /> <p><b>Tip:</b> Only select the Automatically fix file system errors check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Hope this will help...<br />

My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

How go i defrag my asus netbook


Try This:

  1. Open Disk Defragmenter by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking Disk Defragmenter. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_41.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. Click Defragment Now.

Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process

Have an ACER netbook. It was running very slowly. Was told that there is zero space left on the hard drive and that a system restore is required. Would you please tell me how to do this? Thanks


Hi,

I recommend you have a quick look in your documents, music & pictures folders and clean out unused/unwanted files first.

System restore is a great tool but not usually the right tool to use to free up hdd space :)

If your running on Windows I also suggest running the Disk Cleanup wizard.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Once DC has analyzed the PC it will come up with a set of options. It should be safe to select the following and Click OK to continue removing them.
  1. Temporary Internet Files
  2. Recycle Bin
  3. Debug Dump files (WIN 7 / Vista)
  4. Temporary Files
Once you click OK Windows will then remove these files from your HDD freeing up some space. Its always a good idea to run Disk Defragmenter afterwards to ensure optimum performance.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Select your primary O/S drive (usually C:) from the list and Click Defragment. Wait for the Defragementer to complete (It might take some time :) ) then restart the PC.

Hope this helps

:)

Computer takes longer to boot up, plus is running very slow


1. To increase PC boot speed:
There must be too many programs automatically start when you boot your PC. To manage them, click Run, type in "msconfig", select "Boot", then you can disable unnecessary programs from that list.

2. To increase PC running speed:
* Adding RAM is the most effective method, but if the RAM is already at the maximum, then do the following.
* Run disk cleanup and defragmenter. But to be honest, the built-in Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter run quite slow and they will take you quite a long time, so I never use them. Third-party programs are better.
* Run registry optimizer software and defrag. No Windows built-in tools to do this. Search on google or refer to this free registry cleaner review.

Hi! My IBM R52 Notebook has gotten pretty slow. What shall do to get it quicker again and how can I formate the notebook! thanks for your valuabl advise in advance, rp


Try cleaning up your unused programs and files using disk cleanup and defragment your drive using disk defragmenter.
To formaer your drive and reinstall the OS, run the computers recovery wizard, or insert the recovery disk that came with your computer.
If you do not ahve a recovery disk or recovery program, use a windows installation disk like windows vista, windows XP DVD to format and reinstall the OS.
Make sure to backup the stuff you want before attempting this!

DISK DEFRAGMENTER WON'T START


Try disk cleanup, do anything to improve memory, turn off everything except defrag. Check task manager, it'll show you what's using memory.

Taking more time to restat


Slower Startup / shut Down / Restart Speeds are usually due to a highly fragmented hard drive.

Run the disk defragmenter by going to start >>programs>> accessories >> system tools >> disk defragmenter

It may take a very long time depending on the size of your disks and the degree of fragmentation

Alternatively , consider using a paid software solution such as Tuneup Utilities which contains a better defragmenter that does the job quicker.

When the defrags done (may take overnight) , you should notice an increase in speed when starting up , shutting down , restarting , hibernating , launching programs and in Windows Explorer ie. My Documents , my computer etc

Hope this helps
