Home network control

Hello everyone.


I have 4 computers in the home connected through a wired/wireless gateway (router).

I have a combination of xp and windows 7 ultimate.

My main PC in running the Windows 7 Ultimate.

I want to be able to run defragging software and be able to clean the system up from files. Just everyday maintenance is what I need to do of the other computers and I want to do them from the comfort of my room. If there is any software that can help me accomplish this please let me know.

I am goggling it but the software I see doesn't do it.

Hi and welcome

Are you trying to defrag just the one local computer? or lookming to defrag all the computers from one place?

The easiest way is to set up a task to do it automatically each day/week/month/etc. If you want to manually do it, you can remote into each computer and run the software yourself.
