    Freeware 98/ME/2000/XP

    This tool is no longer being updated but still works well
    If you open it with Internet access it will link you directly to driver update links and info

    You simple move the cursor to the right and click the hyperlinks

    The first time you open it I would start with the summary found in the search tree...(more info by far than Belkin)

    Default PageDefrag v2.32

    PageDefrag v2.32

    This tool is for Windows XP...read down to see info on Vista

    Purpose is to speed up your Win XP computer

    PageDefrag uses advanced techniques to provide you what commercial defragmenters cannot: the ability for you to see how fragmented your paging files and Registry hives are, and to defragment them. In addition, it defragments event log files and Windows 2000/XP hibernation files (where system memory is saved when you hibernate a laptop).

    ========================
    Understanding Windows Vista Paging File Size
    Windows Vista does away with this by automatically setting the optimal size for the paging file, even after you add more memory to your computer.

    For instance, if you had a computer with 1GB of memory, your paging file would be roughly 1300mb, but if you add another 1GB of memory to your computer to make a total of 2GB, now when you look at the paging file, it will have automatically increased:

    Things to Know

    Before you start messing with your computer’s paging file there are things you need to understand so you don’t break your computer.

    * Your computer must have a paging file. Windows Vista and most software rely on the paging file even though your computer has plenty or memory.
    * The recommended size of the paging file is 1.5 to 3 times the amount of RAM you have.
    * If you move the paging file, it should always be moved to a different physical hard drive. Never use a separate partition on the same hard drive as the C: drive. This will slow your computer down.
    * You can have 2 paging files. Each paging file must be on different physical hard drives though. An example would be a paging file on your C: and E: drives.
    BTW: Some argue the minimum and max page file should be the same size to avoid fragmentation issues...that is for another thread
    Personally, I follow MS recommendations

    Every hard disk is too small if you just wait long enough. TreeSize Free tells you where precious space has gone to. TreeSize Free can be started from the context menu of a folder or drive and shows you the size of this folder, including its subfolders. You can expand this folder in Explorer-like style and you will see the size of every subfolder.

    Due to this link recently posted on Help2Go, I feel we need

    Ghost 14 (not free)

    Acronis 12 (not free) added to the software Pics
    Both my systems are fine now, but for Ghost 12 (PC) and Acronis 10 (Laptop) I would have lost everything in my case due to Threatfire.....sigh.
    A good investment as I recently found out.

    Hi Tallin,

    I notice your original post recommending Threatfire is still in place here. In view of your recent experience, you may want to edit it.

    @Arraknid,

    I deleted the entire post as I don't recommend Spywareguard or Threatfire at all since adding that thread so long ago.

    @Canuck, here is another highly recommended Cleanup program TFC

    I post it with full permission of OldTimer

    Download TFC to your desktop

    * Close any open windows.
    * Double click the TFC icon to run the program
    * TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run,
    * Click the Start button to begin the process.
    * Allow TFC to run uninterrupted.
    * The program should not take long to finish it's job
    * Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine,
    * if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean

    kind regards,
