This is why I disable the Windows Defrag service.

You are missing the point. This is not marketed or intended as some wonrder product, it's simply a nicer front-end to Windows Defrag, and uses the same API. Did you even think before you posted any of that?

But sometimes there are multiple users on a PC and you don't want the others to see that you've been looking at "insert favorite weird porno fetish here". I even have Ccleaner secretly installed on my work PC.

Well i use O&O Defrag, it keeps all my files happy, and since i use the server edition i can also defrag all the other computers in the house with the same program.

It also permenantly monitors your system and makes sure files dont get fragmented.

Works a dream for me, and cuts roughly 6 seconds off my boot time.

1) Yes, defragging is very much useful.

2) No, modern file systems are NOT fragment proof.

3) Windows has a built in automatic defragger. It works fine.

4) Defraggler (and the majority of other defraggers) doesn't do much that the built in defragger doesn't. This is because they are based on the windows defragger.

Now, a defragger thats not based on the windows defragger MIGHT be useful if you know what you are doing and have a very specific reason to use it, but in all likelyhood you will do more harm than good, or at the very least just be wasting time.

Theres also the fact that the windows defragger runs on a ridged schedule and if your computer isnt left on and unattended on a regular schedule, you are either looking at skipped defrags or system slow downs while its defragging. You could just disable automatic defrag at that point though and tell the windows defrag to work manually. You dont get any kind of indicator of what its actually doing or how much time is left though so if you need that kind of information a third party defrag might be useful.
All all opinions aside, I've used this program and suggest this to many people I know. Yes the built in Windows defrag works just as good. But this Deffragler is great too. The people I recommend this to are barely computer savvy and it helps them. It is a two sided ordeal with defragmentors. But like this guys states with his points you either use it or not. This program that does it differently is the eye candy of seeing what is being defragmented. Some people like that.

For time and energy. Just defrag at nightime once in awhile so you don't waste time.

Fragmentation aside, thousands of files within a directory will still make a mechanical hard drive crawl to its knees on NTFS.
.....For the same reason Microsoft had to put their defragger back into Vista (after taking it out in pre-release builds), because the demand for it was so high and too many people were complaining about it being removed. Microsoft even tried to explain to people that it was a useless feature, but it fell on deaf ears. Vista & 7 not only have a defragger, but have it scheduled weekly automatically, just because people requested it.

According to another thread setup awhile ago, at least half of windows users on this site dont use anti-virus :S

And i can already see there are users baffled by the simple interface of the website and think you have to pay for it

@OP Updated my defragler, thanks for heads up

EDIT: Yeh, i think win 7 does not need defraging cause that superfetch thing is brilliant this time around. But this software is much nicer than win defrag and always helps to defrag other drives i got connected AND this has pretty pictar as it defrags

It's called deleting browsing history,located at the top of your browser.
