I think that the wilders topic is way over blown, I don't know where you get the ethics bit from, I'm no fan of toolbars, but there are opt-out options. Just as there are opt-outs for Chrome in the avast installation.

I couldn't agree more. As long as you can opt out, I see nothing wrong with offering toolbars or other software. Some people actually use that stuff.

@mayflower.
I think if you run every single defragger in existence there would be inconsistencies in everyone of them so i dont see any relevance in your findings other than perhaps puran gives slighly better results.

I use mydefrag which seems effective and i stick with it rather than chopping and changing which to me is a pointless exercise. 8)

If you set Puran to eliminate the gaps, it will do just that. There is no such option in the Windows utility. I always leave that option  and the one to optimize the directories on. I also will occasionally use the PIOZR optimizing and it noticeably speeds things up. Another thing I do before defragging is turn off System Restore so that all the restore points get deleted and can't cause problems. After the defrag is done, I turn System Restore back on and create a new base restore point.

I still think Puran is as good as it gets for defragging.

I also have followed this particular practice for years on my XP and agree. Of course one needs to remember to turn System Restore back on!
On my Win8 I can simply delete Restore point without turning anything off hence don't have to worry about forgetting. :)

@schmidthouse.
I have turned system restore off totally and dont see the need for it anymore.Restoring an image is cleaner and quicker too. 8)

I can't disagree there.
It's just something I have not gotten into or frankly, needed too [yet] in all the years PCing.....restoring an image I mean. ;) :)
