Firefox 33 (on dialup) basic virus/defrag prog pls

Just something basic & free, so I can run some optimising program on my computer would be appreciated please.
Not too worried about protection as such as hardly ever go anywhere, but would be good to run something (since I had to ditch my last one a year or so ago, when it decided to lock up my entire system!)

Sorry, probably more relevant - running Windows XP

The lightest and best free A/V programs are Panda Free 2015, and Avast free.

You already have a defrag program, called defrag. Right-click the drive letter > Properties > look around for the defrag or optimise option.

On dialup, I'd recommend Panda, as it doesn't require signature file updates.
It is the top one here:
Considering the size, see if someone will supply it to you on a memory/flash stick/drive.

thanks rg, found the defrag
and I have some deleting to do before I can begin to run it ;)

And so once done, will go for Panda
very grateful, cheers :)

See the "disk cleanup" mentioned here also.
