    I think all the free SysInternals tools are brilliant.

    One of the first things I load on any new machine is their PsTools package, Contig (file defragger) and PageDefrag.

    I also grab Process Explorer and TCPView, helps keep track of what the machine is doing if it starts acting up.

    Contig is capable of defragging the entire harddrive, but personally I use it for "spot defrags"... for instance, I have an application that loads and constantly accesses a rather large database file, so I start that application via a brief batch file that first runs Contig on the database file to make sure that file is entirely defragged before the application starts. Works very well.

    PageDefrag works well for what it does too - it defragges the page file and some other things that can only be defragged before Windows boots.
