Put your Drive in Order

Question: How do I clean up my system?

The IT Guy says:
Defrag it. From your Program menu, choose Accessories> System Tools > Defragment. Make sure you have closed down all of your other programs prior to starting, or the darn thing runs forever. You shouldn't be on the Net either. Be alert to things you may have running in the background too like a CD burner or virus checker. Select your main drive disk, "C", and hit ok. If you have lots of free time you can play with the display on legend and watch your disk tidy up. Or are there those lesson plans to do? Defragmenting once a month is like cleaning off your desk. It puts like items together and can help speed up you machine
