    Log in as a user with administrative priviledges. Then, go to Control Panel and select Administrative Tools. Go for Computer Management... In the left menu under Storage, you have Defragmenter tool. On selecting it, the main left window indicates list of partitions. Select the first partition and click on the Defragment button. After it is complete, you have option to view a report. Repeat this for all your partitions...

    Easy way
    Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Defragmenter->Select the Drive ->Analyze->=if windows suggests u to defragment then Proceed(as this is your first time you have to)->Defragment.

    & before Defragmenting =>Turn OFF Anti-Virus & FireWall (third party-ZoneAlarm). & the Hibernate Option.

    Disable Hibernate- right click on desktop -> properties-> SxreenSaver-> Power-> &under Hibernate tab _> "Disable Hibernate" :)

    Another method is rightclick on the partition and select Properties. Go to Tools Tab and select Defragment now... The necessary process starts automatically...
