I was to find linkID=122602 and can't find it..


Firstly check your ammount of free hard drive space, it needs to be about 15% free for optimal performance, then do a virus scan, you can defrag, but results wont be spectacular. Lastly sometimes computers are just old and needs to be replaced

Just defragmented my computer and Norton System Doctor says it is seriously fragmented. What's up? Norton Speed Disk can't seem to help either.


sforrest_dou

Even if you ran the defrag program you may still not get a full defrag because your disk space it to low.

To get a go defrag you have to have 15% or more free space to get a good defrag of your hard drive.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

If the defrag is running slow and/or runs along time but does seem like finishing look at how much free space you have. If you have less than 15% free space this will not allow you to get a good defrag of the system. You might try moving some files to another drive while you do the defrag. Also try uninstalling some programs this can help too. Then after you get the system defraged then you can put the files back and reinstall your programs.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

My computer can't defrag, it just runs for hours on end.


I haven't used the default defrag prog in windows for a long time but it was always known to take forever if regular defrags had not been performed.

This will be the case for any defrag prog. however there are faster ones out there. Try the following free one and defrag weekly.

To slow


Computer slowdowns have several factors.

How much memory do you have?

If its 256 or below, try adding or upgrading it to 512 mb or more. Having insufficient memory causes your computer to take some space of your hard disk as a substitute, which is a lot slower than the memory ram.

Also check how much space is available on your hard disk. About 15% of the hard disk space must be freed to prevent slowdown.

Use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean some unneeded files. Go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to clean up, then click Properties, and click Disk Cleanup.

Try also to defrag your files to lessen the time for the access arm of your hard disk to search/read a file. To defrag your hard disk (or other storage device), go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to defrag, click on Properties, then tools, and click Deframent now. Analyze first so you will know if you should defrag the volume, then defrag if necessary. Do this every month to prevent too much fragmentation of files.

Scan for virus and spyware, becuase most of them take hard disk space, memory and have high CPU usage, thus making your system slow even there is no program running. For free anti virus, try AVG. For anti-spyware, try SpyBot S&D.

Also make sure that your computer is properly ventilated. Heat could also limit the performance of your computer.
