Windows 8

I am not very computer literate but know on my old desktop I used to run defrag, error checking, disk cleanup should I be running these on this laptop. I had been told that this system has a good error checking built in but I am unsure. Have avast installed also. If I need to do anything can you please explain how I do it in plain English. My system just seems to be running slow.

Best thing to do at moment is update to 8.1 then you will get 10 free. 8.1 is an improvement on 8.
