Disk Cleaning Utility
As your computer operating on Windows 7 is used, temporary files are created. Temporary files can be best described as history of the activity being done on the system. Over time, the temporary files tend to increase to great numbers and slow down the overall performance of the system. The Disk cleaning utility thoroughly removes all of the temp files and helps increase system performance.
ReadyBoost is a feature by which the performance of the system increases because of increase in physical RAM of the system. With the ReadyBoost feature, users can use any normal USB drive and use it as additional RAM to supplement the on-board RAM. The ReadyBoost feature can be used as and when required (especially for memory intense tasks) and the performance of the system can be increased without changing the hardware or the software.

Data on this hard disk is changed very often and even if the older data is removed from the hard disk, traces of it would still remain in the hard disk of the system. This would cause new data to be stored in disorganized manner. With the Defragmenting tool on Windows 7, users can remove unwanted fragments of data on the system and this would increase the performance as the data can be quickly accessed.
