Make sure XP Pre-Fetch is working properly!!

  1. Most of you propably already know this, but for the pre-fetcher in XP to work properly you must have the 'Task Scheduler' Service on 'Automatic'. This can be found running "services.msc".

    what has the task scehdule got to do with pre fetcher, nothing i think you will find. task schedule is basically a timer to start programs.

    Polygon-Paradox is right. Disable task scheduler service and prefetch doesn't work any longer. Also no more automatic system restore points, btw.

    Task Scheduler has always been running on my box, so it's all good :)
