The defrag option can be found in the above said option.Defragmentation is the important thing we should take care to make our programs running faster and smoother and also to reduce to disk space of our hard disk.We might have installed more songs,files and videos and that may have fragmented our hard disk by spreading out here and there in our hard disk.So,we have to perform this defrag operation to arrange these scattered files in proper order and thereby reducing the diskspace in our hard disk.
2.RUN THE CHECK DISK OPTION REGULARLY:
Your disks should be checked frequently for some errors due to bad sector arrangements in your hard disks.And we may need to perform the chkdsk utility either through disk check or through typing 'Chkdsk' in the command prompt window.This may prevent frequent crashing of programs.
3.CLEAN THE REGISTRY EVERY ONE MONTH:
You must clean your registry after installing or uninstalling any software from your pc.Because some registry links may be left in your pc unused even after you have deleted the software using it.So use some good registry scanner like registry mechanic.This can greatly improve your system speed.But you should never delete the registry key files that keeps your windows system running.It's better to use software to clean the registry rather than doing it manually

6.PERFORM DISK CLEAN UP:
Disk clean up can be performed in the properties dialog box of any disk drive.It is a must and should be done in every 2 weeks to keep your drive free from unwanted temporary files and recycle bin files.Temporary files are created when we install any files or sofwares,when we browse internet and when we perform some actions in our pc.
