The flyer that came with this month's PCA included a tip to utilise a blank USB flash drive for virtual memory. When I go to Properties/ReadyBoost on the USB drive, it says "This device cannot be used by ReadyBoost"
Then it says "ReadyBoost is not enabled because the service responsible for ReadyBoost (Sysmain) has been turned off on this computer. An administrator can turn the Sysmain service back on"
When I searched, including Microsoft website, there is no recognition of the term Sysmain. Can anyone please advise.

I have gone through the two routes sfc /scannow, nothing found, and I have edited the registry to give permission over Sysmain to owner user. I already have it as administrator, no effect, it still will not work. I have changed the flash drive for another, same result.
"I have had the same problem with ready boost. I copied everything in the C:\Windows\Prefetch folder into a new folder on my desktop, then deleted everything in the C:\Windows\Prefetch folder. rebooted and Ready boost is now working on my machine."
