Hi gang! I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this post, so Admin, feel free to move it to a more appropriate thread if necessary. I have an older model HP and I must confess I've been hard on it. It's about four years old, so it's not ancient, however. I've had a lot of video footage on it and so forth and now it's rather slow. I've gotten much of that off it, but it still runs slow. Is it a bad sign when you set it to defrag the hard drive overnight and it's still doing it the next morning?? What can I do about this. What's the best clean-up software for my money? Thanks in advance for any help offered.
being that old, its is just starting to show its age. How much ram do you have in it?

You could also run ATF-Cleaner and clean out all the temporary folders.
And uninstall software you don't need and then run the defrag over night again.
