Windows 7: ssd help

ssd help

Hey everyone, this is my first post but I have been a lurker for a little while and have to say thank you for everyone's help that I have used.

My question is about my ssd's
I do a lot of photo and video editing and I run those programs from my ssd's because the actions are much quicker this way. But when editing I save edited copies to my main drive which is my ssd's and at one point had almost all 250gb filled.
So I went in and cleared out what I didn't really need but the ssd's still dont seem as fast as they were.
Any help on speeding them back up is greatly appreciated.
Here is a windir pic I have seen people use before to see if any extra room can be cleared.

Hello Indysoccer and Welcome to SevenForums,

Your problem is not with your SSD.

What anti-virus are you running?

To clean your SSD:
CCleaner CCleaner

WIN | type CleanMgr | ENTER

I actually am not running a virus scan on this computer because the only time its online is really to upload files or download them from my partners and to browse a couple small forums
I will give that cleaner a try and see if they speed up!

Well at least your av isn't slowing you down.

However, I do recommend the lightest weight, least interfering, auto-updated, free antivirus program which the majority of those who answer questions use: Microsoft Security Essentials:
MSE - Microsoft Security Essentials

Hi,

CCleaner is a good place to start but be sure to uncheck the Wipe Free Space option because this is not made for SSDs.

I see you use Kingston SSDs, what type exactly?
