When to run Disk Defragmenter
In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals—
monthly is optimal—there are other times you should run it
too, such as when:
• You add a large number of files.
• Your free disk space totals 15 percent or less.
• You install new programs or a new version of Windows.
To use Disk Defragmenter:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point
to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.
Detect and repair disk
To run the Error Checking utility:
1. Close all open files.
2. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
3. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard
disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then
4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
5. Click the Check Now button.
6. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan
for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check
box, and then click Start.
Protect your computer
Spyware collects personal information without letting
you know and without asking for permission. From
the Web sites you visit to usernames and
passwords, spyware can put you and your
confidential information at risk. In addition to privacy
concerns, spyware can hamper your computer's
performance. To combat spyware, you might want to
consider using Microsoft Windows Defender, which is
included in Windows Vista, and is available as a free
download for Microsoft XP SP2. Alternatively, there
are other free anti-spyware software programs
Learn all about ReadyBoost
Ifyou're using Windows Vista, you can
use ReadyBoost to speed up your
system. A new concept in adding
memory to a system, it allows you to
use non-volatile flash memory—like a
USB flash drive or a memory card—to
improve performance without having to
add additional memory.
Adding system memory (typically referred to as RAM) is often
the best way to improve a PC's performance, since more
memory means more applications are ready to run without
accessing the hard drive. However, upgrading memory can be
difficult and costly, and some machines have limited memory
expansion capabilities, making it impossible to add RAM.
Windows Vista introduces Windows ReadyBoost, a new concept
in adding memory to a system. You can use non-volatile flash
memory, such as that on a universal serial bus (USB) flash
drive, to improve performance without having to add additional
memory "under the hood."
Back Up First
To open the Backup or Restore
• Click Start, point to All
Programs, point to Accessories, point
to System Tools, and then click
Clear Out Forgotten
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Scroll through the list and examine each program.
Windows XP lists how often you use a program and
what day you last started it. As shown in Figure 1, the
Age of Mythology Trial is a good candidate for
removal from my computer. Though I liked the
game, I haven't used it recently and it's consuming a
lot of disk space. You shouldn't remove anything
labeled as an Update or Hotfix, however, because
they improve the security of your computer.
Remove Autostart Programs
Windows XP comes with the System
Configurationtool (Msconfig.exe), an excellent way
to manage the startup process. To start it:
1. Click Start, click Run, type Msconfig, and then
2. On the Startup tab, you'll see a list of all the
programs and processes that are set to run when
Windows XP loads.
3. Speed up your overall start time by clearing the
check box next to any item you think you don't need.
4. Click Apply, and then restart your computer for
the changes to take effect.

is a powerful, cost-effective way to communicate

partners and shareholders without actually being in the same location.
Onstream Webcasting allows users to broadcast via the Internet live
