Quicksys diskdefrag (free) has an interesting interface, if you like that sort of thing.

Quicksys also makes a registry defragger which works pretty well.

zigzag3143, Perfectdisk is good but it's not free.

The Windows defragger is fine if you don't want anything fancy.

I already provided the link to Quicksys.

Defraggler is another freebie - from the people who make Ccleaner.

What do you mean? The disk defragger includes the registry defrag?

I mentioned defraggler already.
