Clean your prefetch to improve performance.

This is an unique technique for WinXP. We know that it is necessary to wash registry and TEMP files for Win9X/ME/2000 periodly. Prefetch is a new and very useful technique in Windows XP. However, after using XP some time, the prefetch folder can get full of rarely used or obsolete links which can slow down your computer noticeably. My suggestion is: open C(system drive):/windows/prefetch, delete all files (or at least those more than 3 weeks old), reboot. I recommended that you do this every month.

Note:  Deleting prefetch files too often (Every reboot) can decrease system performance!

Delete Prefetch Automatically

Here's an easy way to delete your prefetch -- Automatically!!


1. Go into My Computer and go into your hard drive.


2. Right-click anywhere that a file is not and select the 'New' submenu and click 'Text Document'


3. Name it "deleteprefetch"


4. Double-click on the text file you just created.


5. Type "del C:\Windows\Prefetch\*.* /Q" (without the quotes).


6. Go to File > Save As... and choose "All Files" from the "Save as Type" box and save it as "deleteprefetch.bat"


7. You just created a batch file that will automatically delete all the files in your Prefetch folder. Congrats.
