Computer defrag question


Recommended Posts


As many of you know I have a fairly deep fear of computers. Well, mine's been acting up lately, specifically how long it takes to open a browser window. My neighbor suggested defragging, which sounds very scary and dangerous. I was told to find the option under Programs/Accesories/System Tools, that I should close all programs and click it up.

Is this a good idea?

while there's a defrag thread up, I have a question too:

How come my computer ALWAYS tells me I don't need to defrag when I do the analysis. Seriously, I don't think that in the 2 years I've had it is has said "you should defragment this drive", yet I run torrents, have lots of files, etc. Any idea why it doesn't seem to need it?
