Many people think that a hard drive defrag will make their PC run faster. Not so. It could kill your PC altogether, although this is unusual. Still, it's best to take precautions and understand why you are defragging your PC. Why defrag? The goal is efficiency. If you are defragmenting your computer for any other reason, then you've missed the point. We defrag a drive to make it more efficient.
But inefficient hard drives are not the only cause of a PC slowing down. Registry issues, bloatware, malware and just plain too much data can reduce a perfectly good PC to a dead crawl. So before you defrag your drive (which can take several hours) make sure that you have fixed other problems as well.

I have found that SmartDefrag's boot time defragger actually slows my start up time down by 10 or 15 seconds.

It's for file alignment so your file access time should decrease in time, your boot time has increased because your running the program at windows start. Just like if you startup folder is filled with 20 programs your start time will be slowed down. A full defrag only needs to be run every couple of months depending on your use and not needed for every start.
