Need to defragment computer - PC Desktops


Answers :

Hey mamaferg2004,
\015\012
\015\012If you're not quite sure how to defragment your computer's hard drive, the process can be quite simple depending on what operating system you are currently using.
\015\012
\015\012For many versions of Windows, you can simply double-click on the "My Computer" icon located in either your start menu or on your desktop. Once you have done so, you will need to right-click on the hard drive that needs to be defragmented. Typically, the drive name will be “C:/” but remember that it can vary from computer to computer. Once you've right-clicked on the drive, a menu should appear on your desktop. Choose the "Properties" option, then click on the "Tools" tab in the next menu that appears. Under "Tools" you should find an option that says something similar to "Defragment Now." Click on this button, then on the "Defragment" when prompted again.
\015\012
\015\012Alternatively, you can generally find a direct link to this utility in the start menu of many Windows versions. Simply click on the "Start" bar, highlight the "Programs" link, then "Accessories" "System Tools" and "Disk Defragmenter" in the subsequent panes that open. Clicking on this link should then start the Windows disk defragmenter.
\015\012
\015\012Remember that you may need to start your computer in Safe Mode, close all other programs (including anti-virus/spyware programs) and disable screen savers temporarily while the hard drive is being defragmented. It is generally best to let your computer defragment itself overnight - with your monitor off - since it can take several hours if you have a very large hard drive or have never defragmented it before.
\015\012
\015\012If you are still not sure how to proceed or are uncomfortable doing any of this, I would strongly suggest contacting your local computer repair technician for further assistance. If necessary, you may always bring your computer into your local Best Buy™ store, but please keep in mind that you may be charged for any services sought through Geek Squad® technicians.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps you out.
