My post has been updated.
Sorry, but I think it needs to be taken off line until tuned and corrected. I note the following from the first section,
Defragmenting you drives is no necessarily needed because you computer is set to do this automatically, unless your settings have been changed.
Defragging isn't generally needed often on new operating systems and it is generally not recommended for SSD’s (Solid State Hard Drives) since an SSD wears down every time they are written accessed.
Setting aside the many grammatical errors for now, in Section (1) automatic defragging is NOT available in all versions of Windows. And the reason given for not defragging SSDs is incorrect. You don't defrag SSDs because SSDs do not suffer from fragmentation errors due to the way data is written to and accessed on a SSD - which is totally different from HDs. Wear due to "excessive
" writes was only a problem with initial generation of SSDs. Today's SSDs (especially with modern operating systems) do not suffer from that problem.
Section (2) I NEVER recommend compressing old files. That is a temporary Band-Aid solution until more free disk space is made available buy uninstalling or moving files, or buying more disk space.
Section (3) MBAM Free is a great program but MBAM Free does NOT have a real-time component. All users MUST have a full-time anti-malware solution for real-time monitoring. I recommend MSE for W7 and earlier, and the new Windows Defending for W8 users. Then conduct periodic supplemental scanning with MBAM just to ensure the user, or the full time anti-malware solution did not let something slip by.
Section (4) - Brighter screen is only for notebooks, and of course, shorter battery life is too.
Section (5) Not all operating systems use "Charms". And again, MSCONFIG should be used for troubleshooting, not for permanent configuration changes.
Section (6) Blocking tasks from starting with Windows in Task Manager is the same as MSCONFIG, and should be for troubleshooting and not for permanent changes. If you have tasks you no long want loading at boot, you should modify the program trying to load, not Windows.
Be careful when downloading files.
You have the option to not download bloatware but you have to read the fine print most of the time.
The problem is not "downloading", it is "installing" bloatware. The bloat is typically already in the install package for the program you already downloaded. The issue is users need to seek out the "Custom Install
" option so they have an opportunity to "opt-out" of any bloatware they want to install, along with the program you really want.
Not all programs provide a custom install option. If they don't consider canceling out of the install and going for a competing product.
So, because of the several inaccuracies and many typos/grammatical errors, I think an overhaul is needed. Again, sorry. The effort is appreciated but the results need polish.
