If the built-in defragmentation does not work, try 'Defraggler' (Google it), a much better defragmentation program (free).

What does de frag do

De Frag defragments the files and puts the bits of files in the same place and that speed up the search time. Drivers run the systems and the latest drivers, only get them from the manufacturers web site, will improve the systems within the computer.

I just defragmented my hard drive on my desk top. I got this message that "Some of the files could not be defragmented" There are files that were for my old job and I need to remove these. Documents and...

Defragmenting your computer does not remove files. It simply "cleans up" your files by reorganizing file "fragments" made by your computer. You should be able to simply delete files without an issue by moving them to your trash, or if its a program by unistalling through "add/remove programs"

There are things that you can do to make it run faster.
1. Do a disc clean up.
Click on the Windows Pear or Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean Up
Delete all unnecessary and temp files. Restart your computer.
2. Run an anti-virus scan.
3. Defrag your computer. You can find defrag in the same place where you find Disk Clean Up.
4. Update Drivers - you can use RadarSync to automate it to save your time and headaches.
Do a complete Operating System Reinstallation.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you need more help.

My system restore won't work and my internet explorer won't pop up.

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) . So open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.

You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.

Is it safe to defragment disk while downloading from torrent or if i have downloaded half of the file and paused the download.

I would not recommend it as it may interfere with other data on your PC which could be very difficult and time consuming to fix. I would not recommend doing anything with your PC while defragmenting. I usually schedule a defrag once a month, usually in the middle of the night, so I know I won't be using it at the time.

My acer aspire is taking too long to boot up..once its on,it works fine but the sounds are different,the start up sound...and when i play videos,they work fine but the sound lags and distorts

maybe because there are so too many start up programs try to disable if yor using windows seven you should be able to this by going to your start menu then all programs-accessories-run. when your in the run program type msconfig press ok then a menu will show up go to start ups then just un-check the start ups programs that you think is not important then re-boot your computer to apply this changes.

cleaning up your hard disk and defraging can also help to speed your boot up

to clean and defrag your hard disk go to your start up menu click my computer then right click on the drive that you want to defrag and clean do to properties then you should be able to see a circle telling how much space you have left in your drive right below it is a button "Disk Cleanup" just click it then it will show up the files that needs to be cleaned up.then just click the "clean up system files"button.

to defrag just click on "tools" menu there you should see a defragment now button just click it and it will defrag you hard disk.

adding some memory can also help to speed up your pc or laptop

about the sound problem re-installing your sound card driver should be able to solve the problem but if not then contact the store where you bought your laptop and let them test it so that they can repair it for free if the problem is in the hardware

The computer is painfully slow

Malware dialers and virus' can cause this. Run a virus scan then get Spybot search and destroy here:
After that do a defrag of harddrive.

My pc runs very slowit's a hp

The first problem: It's an HP

That problem you cannot fix, so we'll focus on the ones you can handle. What I generally do to tune-up PCs is to use the following programs:

CCleaner - Removes Temporary Internet files using secure shredding algorithms.

Glary Utilities - Call it the evolved version of CCleaner, without the file-shredding capabilities.

Auslogics Boost Speed (free trial) - This utility removes junk files (generally temporary files produced by installers, games, web-browsers, and system logging events), cleans out your registry, defragments your registry (This really helps with computer speed), defragments your computer (This also helps with computer speed), and optimizes your memory and Internet connections (pages load faster, yipee!).

O&O Defrag (free trial) - The hard-drive defragmenting king, This utility will compact your files and defragment them. On top of that, it will generally recognise your most-used files and place them on the faster portions of your hard-drive ensuring those files/programs run faster.

If you enjoy them, I highly recommend buying Auslogics Boost Speed and O&O Defrag. I repair computers quite frequently and it never ceases to amaze me how their performance increases after using the two utilities on the systems.

Hopefully this answers your question. Let me know if I can do anything else for you.

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
