If you run any windows operating system the you can right click on the disk drive you want to defragment then go properties then the tools tab and you should see defrag somewhere there. (You can always download a free software such as: defraggler).

When I go to compose mail, I cannot attatch a file. Where it used to say

  • The majority of the time the reason an e-mail will not open or send is because the computer is cluttered from extended use without being cleaned up (defragmanted).

  • IF you have McAfee then you can access their defragmentor. If you have one on your operating system you can access it their as well. This is part of "optimizing" your computer.

  • Open your browser and go to tools and erase all your history, cookies, CACHE, etc. This will clean thing up a bit there.

  • Also if you have a ton of music, pictures and videos on your computer you may want to put them onto a thumb drive as these things can slow your computer down as well.

  • To defrag a MAC ---
  1. 1. Open the Disc Utility program, which is located in the "Utilities" folder of your "Applications" directory. Highlight your hard drive from the list and have the program repair the permissions.
  2. 2. Look for a program to defrag your computer. There are some free utilities that can work on your Mac hard drive, but you should seriously consider purchasing a program because of the stability and support that comes with a purchased product.
  3. 3. Take steps to back up your data before you defrag a Mac hard drive. Data loss is unlikely with well-respected programs, but defragging is a long and extensive process, and you can never be too safe.
  4. 4. Plan to run your defragging program during a time when you won't need to use your computer. No matter which program you decide on, it can take up to several hours to defrag a Mac hard drive. Some companies even suggest running the program overnight.

  • Mac Janitor is pretty easy to use. You just click on the pic that says "All Tasks" and the defrag will run. When you see "done" then it is done.

  • If you have a PC and are running windows then the is usually a disk defragmenter available.
  1. 1. Click on the globe in the lower left hand corner of your screen and type in defragmentor.
  2. Then defragment the C drive.

  • Make sure to empty the trash as well.

  • When you have done all this you need to restart your computer twice. After the reset let everything boot up all the way. Then reset it again. Then go try your e-mail and you will be surprised how fast the e-mail, and the web in general works for you now.

  • Also I recommend that you run a full security sweep with your internet security program as well. Make sure that stays up to date. And make sure when all is said and done that you do two resets of your computer.

  • Hope this helps

My defrag program says it is unable to gain access to selected drive. It says another process may have the drive locked???

you need to close all open programs and reboot before you defrag
if you want a clean reboot go to start remove all programs from the startup file so nothing is in the background, if McAfee is in your start up file, it will prevent you from a complete defrag
start/all programs/startup click and drag each file in the startup back to all programs and then do a new reboot

My Computer Wont Defrag

Best way to Defrag is to start up in Safe mode and run the Defrag program. Time to defrag depends on size of HD and free space.
Degragging in normal mode also enables your anti-virus software which I' ve found to interfere with defragging. Best of luck to you and I hope this solves your problem.

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

Try using the free AusLogics Disk defrag program ( If that does not work, you can download a free trial of Perfect Disk Defrag at 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 They all work great and are good to have. I use them.

I need to tuneup my laptop and I don't have my configuration disk for my Toshiba Satellite 265. What do I do?

There are a couple of easy things you can do to tune it up. You can do a disk cleanup and a disk defrag.

To cleanup (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Cleanup

Select the drive you want to clean. It will tell you everything you can get rid of and all you have to do is select it and click ok.

To defrag (assuming you're on XP):
Start-->All Programs-->Accesories-->System Tools-->Disk Defragmenter

Select the drive you want to defrag and click analyze. It will tell you if you need to defrag it. This usually takes an hour or more to do, depending on size of drive and computer performance.

Use Add/Remove Programs from Control Panel to remove any unwanted programs on your computer.
