I use Auslogics. So far it has done everything that I wanted it to.

Best one I've found is JKDefrag.

JkDefrag v3.36

32 and 64 bit versions. Works great.

I used Defraggler, sounds muppetity to me, but it works ok. I don't know about 64bit compatibility. It's made by the same guy who made CCleaner which more people may be more familiar with. Works well, but defragging is no fun, just reinstall Windows :p

Windows Defrag works just fine for most people.

Normally you won't need to bother to defrag your hard drive for quite some time. Hard drives don't be come as fragmented as they used to.
