What are System Tools?

Do some basic maintenance from time to time to keep Windows XP running smoothly. Windows XP provides you with some basic tools to make the maintenance process. You can access these tools via the System Tools menu.

Disk Defragmenter

All Windows XP computers have at least one hard disk. The hard disk acts as your computer's storage area. Almost everything installed on your computer- applications, files, folders, and operating system- is stored here.

With general use, your hard disk can become fragmented. This means that parts of the same disk file become scattered over different areas of the disk. A fragmented hard disk slows down your computer and hinders its performance.

To keep your hard disk running smoothly, you must routinely defragment or defrag the hard disk. The Disk Defragmenter tool can help you do this.
