    For hard disk cleanup and Windows registry repair, I've had very good results from using these two applications, which apps are available on CNET's download.com site:
    1. Wise Registry Cleaner; and
    2. Wise Disk Cleaner (includes defragmenter) and can also clean out Windows update temporary files.

      Have you tried MyDefrag? And what do you think of its value?

    I have MyDefrag (link for those that want it http://download.cnet.com/windo.....1976.html)

    I actually swap up defrag programs every so often since each one performs differently.

    You don't have to download any software to defragmenter your hard drive. Check the link below Manually Run Disk Defragmenter in Windows 7..

      I recommend third-party software for defragmenting. The Windows defragger across all the different versions of the OS don't do that good of a job.

      First, I too find that third party software is better.
      And second, (without giving you boring technical details) there can be issues with Windows defragmenter that prevent it from running.

      So for those reasons, I rely on third party programs. As long as your version of Windows is stable, it is probably the best match for your specific hardware.
