Windows 7: ms verses third party

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
 
 

For the KISS, keep it simple stupid, approach, I recommend using the Win 7 defragmenter.

I've used several others, but for the person who simply wants to use their computer and forget about all the neat software which they can use to clutter their desktop, then use the Win 7 defragmenter.

Note: My desktop is cluttered.

For XP, I've found that Auslogics Disk Defrag works better than the built in defrag, and the graphics are funner to watch. But I still wouldn't use it over the 7 built-in defrag.
you say it take a long time, i used it and it goes through passes, what are these? it got to pass 11 and seemed to get nowhere so i stopped and used 3rd party
Yes, those passes are what I based my analogy on in my other post. Instead of going through one or two times, and assuming all is well, 7's defrag goes over the hard disk multiple times, and even moves non-fragmented files around in such a way the Windows will boot faster and programs will run faster. Let it run. You can do your normal activities while it runs, like web browsing or using MS Office. Some hard drive intensive stuff might run slow, like video editing.
