    Beside adding ram, reformatting is one of the best way to speed up computer. When a room is full with items, no matter how you arrange it, it still cant help much.

    My experience with defragmenting my computer is horrible because most of my files got allocated somewhere and some of my applications don't run anymore. But according to a friend of mine, defragmenting your computer is needed whenever you installed, moved, copy, etc in your computer. In his explanation, he also said something about how the files in my application is being splitted and if the program noticed that the file is bad it'll go to the bad sector of your hard disk.
