Can Defragging Your Desktop Speed Virus Scans?

Can Defragging Your Desktop Speed Virus Scans?
There are numerous well documented improvements to system performance and reliability when an automated disk defragmentation program is used. Applications load faster, the computer boots to a useable state in less time, and backups require less time to transfer data. The purpose of this paper is to narrow the focus and address the tangible benefit of disk defragmentation to desktop and laptop client security.

This single doing (antivirus, antispybot, antiworm) and defragmentation, check disk (or 'scan disc' on some systems) and disc cleanup (ram space, short term memory) through Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer). This will keep you free (no money and more time freed-up) from going to the local hardware man. He will probably do the same thing, but not leave any of the programs behind.

I use JKDefrag. He, Mr. Kessler, gives you a lot of information that will help you to understand and get even better defragmenting performance. His can be found at
