Re-enable Prefetch

  Barrie_G 13:43 17 Aug 2003

Hi, I emptied my prefetch folder a couple of months ago, decided to check to see if it was getting full again last week only to find that it is still empty.

I have checked the registry setting at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters and it was set at 5 I reset it to 3 as per instructions at click here this was done several days ago and has made no difference.

Any further suggestions will be most welcome as I'm running XP Home, I only have 4 programs running at startup and it takes 1min 15secs to get to the desktop, ok so its not taking ages but I know that it should be able to get there faster than that.

I have also tried bootvis and it gained me time and acctually took longer to boot than without even when it had optimised my settings.

It can take 3 days or so for the Prefecth to start filling up again.

You could always try "Windows XP Prefetch Clean And Control" click here to try setting the value again.

Thanks for that Jester2k II, I'll give it a couple of days to see if it makes any difference if not I'll just have to learn how to twiddle my thumbs for a minute or so.

Your web site looks interesting with lots of interesting looking downloads and has been saved in my favorites for me to have a better look at later.
