In order to maintain your computer in optimum working condition, users have to scan and remove all malware from the system, update the Windows operating system, and also clean up the hard disk of the system. As malware consume all the resources on a computer, removing all traces of the infection is very important to keep the system working well.

Windows 7 comes preinstalled with a security application called Windows Defender.

Windows 7 users can make use of this tool to regularly scan the system for malware and remove them and this would keep the system working at maximum possible efficiency.
Disk Cleanup Utility
Windows 7 also comes preinstalled with a disk cleanup utility. When your Windows 7 system is used, lots of junk files or temp files are created and over time these files might increase to great numbers and slow down the system. The disk cleanup utility can be used to remove all junk files from the system; this would not only help speed up the system but would also help users gain free space on the hard disk.
Like previous Windows-based operating systems, even Windows 7 comes with a defragmenting tool. Data on the hard disk on your Windows 7 system is changed very often and even if data is removed from the recycle bin, traces of information would remain on the hard disk of the system. Such traces would cause new data to be stored in an unorganized manner causing system slowdown. The defragmenter can be used to remove unwanted fragments of data from the system. Removing the fragments of data would help speed up the system and maintain it at optimum working condition.
