I can't start the SuperFetch service in Windows 7

My Windows 7 Home 64-bit boot has become slowly, so I suspect it's because SuperFetch service won't start... I can't start it myself, nor will it start automatically. These are the steps I've already taken:

- I've set the values for reg entries of "EnableSuperfetch" and "EnablePrefetcher" to "1",

- I deleted the contents of the "prefetch"-folder in C:\windows,

- I've done the "sfc /scannow" test using Command Prompt. The command created a log file called CBS with a plethora of information which I don't understand... There ARE some "errors" in there...


And still it won't start. It does however start ONCE after I delete the contents of the "prefetch"-folder, but than I'd have to delete the folder everytime and that beats the whole purpose. Please give me some suggestions, thank you.
