When u defragmented ur disc on pc , u might have been running any security software ( most likely ZONE ALARM ) in many cases which can acquire a permanent storage on ur hard disk which cannot be defragmented... resulting in this situation.....
Most possible solution : if ur able to restart pc then try to defragment again in safe mode other wise the only other alternative u will have to format disc and re-install the OS you have.....

My computer is very slow


Hi target to sp...
Try doing a Defrag of your Hard drive and also a disc cleaning.
Both will get rid of junk on your computer to make it run faster.
1...Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Disc cleanup
2...Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragment
Note: > means "next"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If that does not work then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when it was running fast.
3...Left Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Restore

This is probably a loose video car.

When you were fixing the RAM (probably remove it and then re-seat it), the video card may have come loose.

1. Turn off the PC and unplug it;
2. Touch something metallic to discharge static;
3. Unplug the monitor cable;
4. Open the case and carefully remove the video card.
5. Carefully but firmly replace the video card (most cards will snap when they fit back into place -- follow your video card manufacturer's instructions -- get these from the manufacturer's website.)
6. Plug everything back in and restart the PC.

You should get a good third party defrag program to keep your PC running at its best.

Fragmentation is basically broken-up pieces of files and free space randomly scattered all over your disk. The disk has to work a lot harder to save files in pieces and then to find them again and this really slows your computer down. It also wears out your disk, as the more the disk is used, the faster it wears out.

Basic defragmenting finds all the pieces of a file and puts them together, saving time.

Windows has a built-in defrag tool but it is very slow and you cannot use the PC while it is running (some users complain that it did not completely defrag their disks despite running all night).

Here is a Top 10 Reviews side-by-side comparison of the best defrag programs around:

http://disk-defragmenter-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

Select a program and install a free trial. The better defrag programs are automatic. The gold medal winner in the above review can defrag while you use the PC and it will also prevent fragmentation.

You can get a free trial for the gold medal winner via the review or at: http://www.diskeeper.com/defrag

Defragment your disk drives regularly.

Good luck to you!

The hard drive files are not recognisable and threre are no file in my documents or my Local disk drive and my memory is full how do i fix this.


Ok I assume you get a virtual memory is low balloon at the bottom of the screen? If so then this is due to insufficient RAM to run the amount of programs or resource hogging programs like the newer internet explorer can be. If not and you have a low disc space balloon next to the clock then what you can do is first do a disc clean up which is found in start all programs accessories system tools disc cleanup. It make take a long time if your hard drive is filled with a bunch of temp files as well as old files and Once it is up check everything and let it clean up all of the un-necessary things. This will take awhile as well. Once it is complete I would suggest you do a disk defragment as after deleting a lot of files it can cause things to get fragmented and slow your computer down. this can be done by going to start all programs accessories system tools and disk defragment. You can analyse the disk if you want to see how fragmented it is before defraging as it will tell you if it really needs to be defraged or not. And that is about it. If you need further assistance just comment to say if this helps.

Try a good clean up.
Turn system restore OFF Lots of nasties hide there (Because its protected)
boot into safe mode with networking (F8)
Download Malwarebytes, and full scan
Download CCleaner run cleaner / registry cleaner / tools startup, you can disable just about everything apart from your antivirus, you can then re enable each item that you need.
Defrag, i use auslogics defrag with their screensaver defrag (all free)

Yes, if the the fragmentation was bad to begin with the Disk Defragmenter stops after some time. I've had some  customer's pc's in which i had to run it 3 times in a row to get it to a decent level.

reboot into safe mode. You can kill the power to the PC without shutting down. When you turn it back on it will ask you a few boot option, select safe mode, then try the defrag.

Computer will not load.


use safe mode..do a disc clean, defrag..and then reboot...sounds like the operating system headers went unhappy when you moved it(which I highly recommend you NOT do again)..
