When Puran Defrag was first released it was an excellent defrag utility.
However in the past couple of years it has started bundling toolbars with the install files.
Personally I've got no time for authors who do this. Originally was 4 stars but now downrated to 1 due to the bundled crapware.

Excellent defragger that is now free. Just one gotcha - look out for the offer to install Babylon Toolbar during the installation (unless you actually want it of course). Apart from that little proviso (which I don't feel warrants subtracting a star), it does a very good job. One of the best I've seen, it includes the option to do a boot-time defrag which will defrag the pagefile if possible, and a scheduler.

This Review is for Puran and Puran Utilities.
Do not install if you plan to uninstall it as it leaves BS all over the place like in your System32 folder and files still run after being uninstalled.

Update Nov. 2012
Looking through my registry and there are keys left all over the place.
Never will I touch this crap again.
Bad coding for a uninstaller, SHAME ON YOU !

For leaving your crap behind instead of removing it in the uninstall it rates a -0

This review is for Puran "Free' Defrag 7.3:
I did a 'boot time' defrag and found that ALL of my system restore points were erased. I am using Vista 32 bit Ultimate. Everything still seems to be working though.

I have tried Puran Defrag on XP-SP3 and Win7 Home Premium on separate PCs. On both occasions I found that the defragger works OK as long as you don't select the boot time defrag PIOZR tech that they claim is their USP. This feature seems to corrupt certain files on the system.

On XP, I found I just could not boot up again, while on Win7, I was unable to connect to the internet through my LAN connector. On both occasions I was smart enough to maintain a backup disc image, which saved me from hours of redoing everything. Although the software gave some improvement over the results I got from other defraggers, I still feel that there is something they really need to do about these issues.

not bad guys, i think iobit smart defrag does a better job than this and is the best of the free defragmenter progs ive used (puran auslogics ultra defrag)

Surprisingly solid defragmenter, with very fast defrag times and a smart system optimizer which makes a decent use of the fast disk area. The on-the-fly function is very efficient, although it doesn't work well with service-based screensavers like Boinc (except by fiddling with the Boinc CPU usage).

I tried this out. Definitely has good potential. But some small niggles need sorting. I have WinXP-SP3 with Avira and Comodo Time Machine. I enabled their advanced file placement and defragging option (I forget the name) and opted to reboot-defrag-reboot.
This seemed to have made a difference to my boot time, but cause several system files to get changed in some way, giving me pop-ups asking me to restore them from the installation disk. Had to restore to earlier good configuration with ComodoTM.

I hate to seem to be the lone dissenter here but after using this defragmentation tool for a few days it has slowed my boot time and loading of my most commonly used programs. I appreciate the work put into it and that is free. I hope they can improve it. For now I'll stay with my current defrag utility.
