10 more Sysinternals tools to simplify routine Windows admin tasks

Page Defrag

Windows has a bit of a tendency to allow files to get fragmented and perform less than optimally, and for files/folders there are countless tools and utilities to help keep your system in top shape. Many of these tools (especially the built in tool for defragmentation) doesn’t do much for the registry and paging files. Page Defrag will help you get the page files and registry under control.

Note: In testing, it seems that Page Defrag is a 32bit-only utility.
