This is actually a very through and quick fragmentation program, which we use on a school district pcs and also at home. Some of them do come with bundled bologna, but you can decline those. Overall it's much better than the Windows built-in defrag

I don't choose to run this at every start-up, but it's a brilliant program which should only be removed if you never use it.
