Isn't that why I got 4GB of top-quality RAM in the first place? So, why bother with the Superfetch? After a year of use on Vista this file can slow boot times ridiculously, I've heard customers complaining that Vista takes in excess of 20 minutes to boot. only to use the same organizational metheds that are from the windows 95 erra, wtf. his comment is here
It's a different story if we can set which programs to cache manually, then it will be a very useful feature. Even with my old non SSD hardrive my computer would boot way faster than your 3 mins 1 - 1 1/2 at the most if that. I've turned back on Windows Search, since it's smart enough to pause itself if the system is not idle (Superfetch seems to lack that at any setting, slowing the system way less than 2gb for vista/win7. http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/111423-superfetch-doesnt-work.html
How does it know what programs should be cached. In a program I wrote to release the cache memory, the top memory is released fairly fast, but the last 100 MB is hard fought and can take over a minute So you're telling me you dont have that much to spare? super fetch is solving one small problem while creating bigger one.
Of course your mileage may vary. Downgrading to 3gigs made the blue screens go away. July 30, 2009 rookal I see mostly everyone here either trashing or loving superfetch, and most are recommending disabling it. Malwarebytes January 27, 2008 Charles I agree with Peter.
Professor Bates If you're a ‘power user' (some would say ‘control freak') and most of us are…turn Superfetch off. It only does its work (loading stuff into ram) while the computer is idle, and of course if something needs more memory the cache would get dumped as you go. This did not fix the HD thrashing and immediate near total system freeze when the thrashing would begin! directory Whoever at MS who designed this POS should be fired!!!
After I added more RAM, bringing it to eight gigs it took so long to load I thought the Ram was faulty, at last it loaded. Superfetch is an absolute aberration. July 9, 2010 cooldrl The difference disabling SuperFetch makes is astounding. If you look at the way the oporating system is organized its practactlly the same thing as windows 95.
Any other excellent advice? https://www.technipages.com/windows-enable-disable-superfetch This happens over and over, every time you close one app, and open another.

I have always hated the way MS assumes it knows best about defaults and preferences! I discovered the cause for the blue screens in Safe Mode (via Google!) and reduced my memory to 3gigs, the blue screens went away and I restored via CD to a July 21, 2011 cecil this has stopped a lot of problems for me by disabling this, thank you! weblink Thanks June 21, 2008 Chris Thank you.
One day I discovered that attempts to actually perform a System Restore from a previously and successfully saved Restore Point would not work from within a normal boot of Ultimate. For faster boot times - see your msconfig and disable unnecessary services. This helped me a lot and I hope that you don't mind me sending some traffic your way.
Grrr, I'll lead a mob against SF….. After they took my money I discovered that the reason for the blue screen, and inability to do a restore by any means whatsoever, was because I had 4gigs of RAM SuperFetch data for applications is stored in /Windows/Prefetch (the various .pf files). One simple tweak and he'll probably trip over his own jaw.
The key here is that the more RAM you have, the bigger the benefit SuperFetch delivers; according to Tom's Hardware, Vista's sweet spot was about 2GB of RAM, but even at I am currently in Safemode now disabling this awful service.
