Hi VoG I think i have that on a disk would that do or is it best to download?

Disk should be fine.

Diskeeper is a lot better than Windows defragger.

This will sort you out...EndItAll....click here Run it and it will close down ALL unecessary programmes. You can turn them back on by a quick reboot.

sgtdibble, When you defrag, you should first close down all programs on you computer, including your anti-virus as you will be off line anyway. Your anti-virus or any spyware detecting programs will certainly interfere with your defrag software.

Use your Task Manager to close all programs. Or, Degrag in DOS.

Gandalf, there is no reference to XP! I suppose it is best to wait for the upgrade?

Enditall will work with XP...at least it does on mine;-)))
