How To Make Your Computer Run Faster

When you add a file or a new program to a new computer, the hard drive is relatively empty so new data is saved to the hard drive in one whole block. When you need to use that information, the computer can quickly access it because it is all in one place.

When using your computer adding files and applications, the hard drive starts to become full. when you delete or remove programs you create little empty gaps among the other data that the computer will reuse. Eventually, the computer is no longer saving information in big blocks. Instead, it puts information in the many small empty areas of your hard drive. The result is that one program or file is broken up, or fragmented, into small bits pieces and stored in several different areas of the hard disk. The computer ingeniously keeps track of the location of each piece of data and puts it all together when it is needed. Yet, obviously, the more in pieces the information is, the longer it takes to access the information and the slower the computer becomes. To make a computer run faster we need to defrag it, read below to find out step by step how to do this!

1.From the start menu point to "all programs"

2.Point to "Accessories"

3.Point to "System Tools"

4. Click on "Disk Defragmenter

5. The disk defragmenter will display the hard drives on your computer. Just select and click Defragment.

If you have multiple hard drives here, defrag each drive.

Diskeeper 08 is a cool defragger that can be set to defrag automatically in the background. The PC can be used as usual for other other functions without any hassles. There is no need for running the task manually.
