    What you should know about disk-defrag reports



    By Fred Langa

    Running different disk-defragging apps on the same drive can give very different results. Here's why and what it means for you. Plus: Identifying and controlling Windows' services; how much malware protection is enough; and possibly the best-yet sync/backup tool.

    Sorting Out Windows Services

    Should you want yet more information on a particular service, conduct a precise Web search, using its formal name or the name of its executable file (provided in Services). You should find everything you need to know about what the service does.
    Or, you can use a well-established listing site, like this one . They have a "Safe" configuration for each version of Windows from Windows XP through Windows 8.
