Editors' Review

+

Smart Defrag 3 hits all the notes you'd expect from a defragger, but it is too aggressive in terms of advertising. It throws recommendations for other programs at you at every turn. Still, it makes up for that pestering with performance that rivals most defrag programs for Windows.

This program tries to replace Windows' default defragmentation widget by being more advanced and offering more style, features, and customizations. We're not kidding about replacing, either -- the program will turn off your usual defragmenter and install other programs if you don't uncheck those options during install, so be careful. Once you have Smart Defrag 3 installed, you'll be very happy with its futuristic layout that offers some customization and a nice hard drive map that is a delight to read. It lets you set automatic and boot time defrags, as well -- but you might want to program those to happen when you're not using your computer, as the program took upwards of 30 minutes to defrag when we tested it. It was smart enough to recognize our SSD and not defrag it, though. The program has an "action center" that claims to recommend performance fixes, but they are all just recommendations for other programs made by the app's developers.

It's not as if those programs are bad, by any means, it's just a little obnoxious to see nonstop advertisements for other programs. Outside of that and somewhat slow performance, Smart Defrag 3 offers everything you'd want in a defragmenting program. It's a fine replacement for Windows' default and compares favorably to top programs like Defraggler.

    "IObits, The Installer of Malware"

    October 05, 2014   |   By jycnan

    Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.2.0.341

    Pros

    Thinking, give me a few more hours.

    Cons

    Okay, I installed Advanced System Care, due to the fact that Smart Defrag came with and IObits Malware fighter, since C/Net recommended both. Next, my AV started finding Conduit, which I succeeded getting much faster then Spigot. I always go to the last thing installed, which in this case was Advanced System Care. I even emailed IObits, they told me I shouldn't have installed the toolbar it actually states it's from Spigot! I did not, I do not install toolbars.

    Summary

    It is a great program, provided it didn't installed the malware. It took me an week or so to find the source of spigot to get rid of it. I'd delete it, it would come back. I'd delete the IObits extensions, they'd come back.

    Personally, I would stay far away from anything by IObits.

    "Liked until realizing it's AutoUpdate installs Conduit"

    September 14, 2014   |   By MMiller1000

    Version: Smart Defrag 3 3.2.0.341

    Pros

    Have used it for a few years and it seems to work in the background without too much disruption.

    Cons

    I've been wondering why all of the family computers I support and have installed Smart Defrag on have come down with a case of CONDUIT SEARCH I have to install. Just ran the custom update installer and found the source - SMART DEFRAG UPDATE if you choose Default Install it puts this malware on your computer. Tough to remove.

    Summary

    I will start removing it from every computer and will tell all web blog friends to avoid it. They've gone to the dark side.
