I would use the money spend on defrag tools to buy an SSD to put your OS and most used applications on there. no more defrag needed :)

I just finished imaging my OS/App drive from HDD 7200rpm to 80Gb Intel SSD.
boot time before was ~5minutes and launching apps, games, alt-tab between apps was not very snappy
with the SSD systems boots under 60 seconds and is usable right away, all apps open instantly; a true upgrade, multiple times faster.

+1 for the SSD,

If your looking for something to "meet your needs" you should be looking at an SSD. I grabbed an OCZ Vertex Turbo 120 GB a couple months back and love it, huge difference right away.

I certainly would not spend to much time or money when looking for a good or the best defrag utility because there's basically no such thing. Every defrag utility has it's own method. Method a might give the best results for photoshop, but method b works better for BFBC2 while method c is better for windows.

Also, you'll hardly notice the performance improvement unless your hard drive is severely fragmented. Just run a defrag tool like one in a month, keep your swap file, temp files (windows, ie, ff, chrome, photoshop, etc) on a different partition (eg. the first 20Gb of your disk) and you're one step ahead of fragmentation.
Put your documents on another disk as you're unlikely to notice any change when these files are fragmented.

Absolutely bizare spamming scheme they have :-p

on forums which have no active users these self contained conversations do create a false user experience and marketing scheme; if a user searches on google for " " they would hit this thread and read about users recommending a certain crappy malware and think it's legit :)
