    article in Costa News today about "maintaining a healthy PC""
    Obviously written by a PC geek and directed at PC geeks as I have no idea what he is on about!!
    1. Defragmentation. Writes about it but not HOW to do it!!
    2. Carry out a "disc cleanup"" again, how???
    2. Checkdisc CHKDSK?? again nothing to indicate what to do with it.
    Am I missing out on something

    Double click COMPUTER. If you right click C drive and click PROPERTIES they are under Tools.

    But, if it works, don't fix it.
