Defragment your hard disk from the Command Prompt

In our previous article we mentioned that the Disk Defragmenter has been simplified a lot. In this new version, the user interface doesn't allow users to select only one of their partitions for defragmentation. You can defragment all your partitions at once or none.

How to disable Windows Defender

Even if Windows Defender is offered for free and it has decent protection features, some people might prefer other applications to secure their system from spyware and other threats.

Recycle Bin is one of the things that were redesigned in Windows Vista. It no longer has separate tabs for each partition. There is only one tab and you need to scroll up or down through your partitions list in order to make the changes you want.

This is why we decided to create this short tutorial and show our users how to configure the “new” Recycle Bin.

VistaBootPro - Manage multiple operating systems the easy way

Windows Vista brought a big number of changes, including a new startup process.

Unfortunately, VistaBootPro has a fee of $9.95 for personal use.
