Prefetch (WnXP Pro)

  zarobian 16:04 02 Jul 06

Prefech is designed to speed up your PC's but it can sometimes have the apposite effect that actually slow things down by creating temporary files and actions.

I therefore clear my Prefetch folder once in a month.

Your comments please.

I have software that cleans it at every start up, I have never experienced any problems, or significant slow down.

CCleaner click here
will clear all temporary folders including prefetch (if you tick the option).

Use two or three times a week more if doing lots of surfing.

Thanks for the tip. I am using CCleaner and have ticked the option "Old Prefetch" files.
Do you think it is sufficient to rely on.
