    Hi,
    I installed XP SP1 last night. I thought everything went well.
    Now I have discovered my prefetch folder is gone. I have searched for it but its nowhere to be found. I havent installed anything after SP1. I did do a defrag after the installation.
    I am not the only one with this problem.
    Anyone have any ideas?
    I'm running XP pro.

    Yes, PREFETCH disappeared on my computer also. It doesn't seemed to have been renamed or to have been converted into a hidden folder.

    Also running XP Pro.

    Is prefetch definitily enabled? What is the registry value for 'Enable Prefetcher' at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters ? The default value should be 3.
