These programs will slow down your computer by eating up precious resources, startup times will also suffer as you await multiple pieces of software to scan and prepare itself for use.
Adding and remove files from your computer will eventually make them fragmented (Meaning they are scattered across multiple places on your hard drive). This causes your computer to work harder when it uses them, slowing down over all performance. Running Defrag will fix this problem.
As you use your computer bad sectors and files or folders going missing can develop. Use Chkdsk (Scandisk) to resolve and repair these problems.
Chkdsk and scandisk require exclusive access to a volume when it runs. Therefore thiese tasks are usually run outside the operating system on reboot or from your system CD/DVD.
