there are many ways to make your PC run faster. I would recommend:

Spybot Anti-Spyware- www.safer-networking.org
Avast Antivirus - www.avast.com

Most of those Diskeeper programs usually make your system worse, because they're like Kazaa...they dont work..

symantec antivirus corporate edition (found in schools/goverment) is a really good antivirus, and it catches everything.

Anything containing the label "NORTON" is pure crap.

Windows defragger works but lot slower and might not complete sometimes. I prefer Diskeeper finishes much faster than others and I had no problem till now.
I do use lot other tools to keep my system clean, ccleaner, ad-aware, spybot, avg and a good firewal.

I run Diskeeper 10 Pro and it's probably one of the best software you can have. Windows defragger doesn't do the job as complete as Diskeeper. I also run Window Washer to clean unecessary temp files that can hog up harddrive space.
