Hahaha  ;D ;D ;D

I just tried it just now and I find an increase in speed. I used Perfect Disk before.

Maybe it is just a placebo effect but this software is great

For  $19.95 USD I'll skip it.

Windows 7 automatically defrags weekly for me.

Defraggler from Piriform the maker of CCleaner is all I need for XP:
