MyDefrag - Excellent free tool for automatic defrag and optimization

When I bought my current car I got 31 mpg. Just a few months later I'm getting 25. WTHH? I have no idea, because I don't know cars. But I do know computers, and I know that they can slow down over time (especially older machines) when the data stored on their hard drives get scattered all over the darn place. So utilities like this one can clean you up and set you on the straight and narrow. From the developer:

"MyDefrag is a disk defragmenter and optimizer (a maintenance utility to make your harddisk faster) for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, Win7, and for X64. It is freeware, no time limit, fully functional, no advertisements. Fast, low overhead, with many optimization strategies, can handle floppies, USB disks, memory sticks, and anything else that looks like a disk to Windows. Included are a set of easy to use scripts for endusers, a scripting engine for demanding users, a screensaver, and a combined Windows plus commandline version that can be scheduled by the Windows task scheduler or for use from administrator scripts."
