    Your computer is far from clean and unless you follow the instructions I gave you in your other thread, it`s going to stay that way.

    Once your system is clean, then I`ll show you how to speed up your system.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you don`t have enough free space to run a defrag, then you must uninstall any programmes you don`t need and backup any music/photos etc. Hopefully, this will enable you to recover enough hdd space to be able to run a proper defrag. This requires approximately 15% free space.

    I suggest you take a look at this thread HERE.

    As far as your virus/spyware problems are concerned, you`d be well advised to post the requested logfiles in your other thread.

    I can then analyse them and advise you on any further action that may be necessary.

    Regards Howard :)

    hey Howard, out of curiosity: I wanted to know - what are the down size or side effects if I de-frag my drive even it didn't have that 15% free space? = 0)

    It`s quite possible that the defragger wouldn`t be able to complete the job.

    Taken from HERE.

    well it might complete the job or it might freeze because you lack the disk space..
