    Defrag, compresses old files, and essentially frees up space, it may remove old unused files, but besides that it doesn't mess with pictures, as far as I know. Actually, I just checked, my defrag is scheduled to run every week, and it just reorganizes files so your computer doesn't have to work as hard to run normally.

    Run disk clean up and have it delete temporary internet files, I'm sure if it hasn't been done in a long time there will be a long in there.

    Defrag does not delete anything..........
    However fragmented files are de-fragmented and restored to preferred working order.

    From Wikipedia:
    In the context of administering computer systems, defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation in file systems. It does this by physically reorganizing the contents of the disk to store the pieces of each file close together and contiguously. It also attempts to create larger regions of free space using compaction to impede the return of fragmentation. Some defragmenters also try to keep smaller files within a single directory together, as they are often accessed in sequence.

    What about my shut down problem, I think that those things just speed up your computer... Besides only about 1/4 of my computer space is used up...

    My old laptop did that to me, wiped the whole thing clean and it worked fine for a while, but I think my processor just couldn't handle what I was trying to do with it. How old is the pc? I'm pretty sure it's a pretty gnarly virus you have, because thats what the main issue was with mine (according to the guy who fixed it).

    I love using that word. I don't see it used very often, so I bust it out when I can.

    Ok one last thing. My computer fan is pretty loud. It runs for probably 22 hours a day. Is there any way to reduce/stop the noise?...
