    In Windows 7 the HDD should already be fragmenting itself so you do not need to worry about that. You can empty the recycle bin and you can also press the start button and type in disk cleanup. You can select temp files and folder to clean them up.

    Also in your browser you can empty temp internet files and cookies. Each browser is different but in Internet explorer you can go to Tools menu and select internet options. Then select delete in browsing history. You can select to remove temporary internet files and cookies.

    There are other specialty programs out there but be cautious as they can cause more harm then speed up your PC.
