i've never use hardisk defragment in windows before as i never saw the need to use it, and i've never ran into any problems until up recently, i notice that my pc would start slowing down to a point where it is no longer possible for me to work at all, fortunely i was able to slove this problem by logging out and reloggin back into windows; then my pc would function as normal again.
after extendsive virus scans and hardrive formatting reveals that there's no malware cauing this and the problem persist form time to time, i began to worry; if it's not a virus then could it be that my pc is failing? or worst, perhaps my hardrive is already breaking down?
i don't know much about pcs, so i came here for help, i have 2 questions which i would like to ask:
-what's happening with my pc? is my 1 year old brand new SATA hardrive alreadyfailing? is this a sign?
-a friend recommand me to use hardsick defragment in windows, although i doubt a software could do much good at this state, but i still would like to know if i should use it as previous experience tells me that hd defrag could take quite a long time, althouth if it's worth my time i'll be more than happy to try it, please give me some advice on this.
thanks for taking your time in reading this, thanks for the help.
