my windows 98 defrag has given up the ghost, I only have a small hard drive, 8.4 GB but after 3 hours it was still checking for errors and hadn't started to defrag. Is there a\ faster one available to download? Shagrin
Also disable your 'Quick Launch' toolbar in case anything there is writing to your PC during defrag, works for me. Right click on empty area next to system tray select toolbars, uncheck 'Quick Launch'. TR
I fixed my defrag problem by closing all the programs on my task manager except explorer and systray. What do all the others do, some are obvious but what are the following:- Instantaccess Companion hidserv Type32 DAP Rnaapp Do these make startup take a long time and which ones can I delete and how do I do it. Shagrin
I liked Diskeeper Lite so much, that I bought the paid for full version, it is about twenty quid. It can be left to run constantly in the background, and keeps any number of drives continuously at 100% unfragmented. It does not appear to slow the computer down, at least, I haven't noticed any difference.
