    so it seems you have to select "speed my computer" every time you stick in the flash, anyway to get it to "do this every time"?

    now this is really bizarre lord;

    I have been doing a search and can't find anyone who came up with a solution as yet

    BUT

    I have two boxes, one the flash asks for a decision every time, the one I am on now wouldn't ask me no matter what I did, I turned it off, turned it on, removed hardware, turned everything off in control manager and even turned the service off and then on in services.msc

    then it occured to me to look at perfmon and sure enough the readyboost is working on this box even though I have removed and put it back in any number of times without it asking what it wants me to do

    I am perplexed

    you need to reboot after turning readyboost off for the change to take effect.

    Not sure I understand.

    The way Readyboost operates is typically by having flash memory with the requisite read/write levels attached to the device. Are you disconnecting and reconnecting this repeatedly?

    There is, as far as I know, software installed on the flash device and a script that runs to enable readyboost ergo you will NEED to re-enable it everytime.

    Alternatively, don't disconnect the memory everytime :)
