See if Task Scheduler in Services is enabled. You need this for Prefetch to function.

thnx for reply.i did enable task scheduler in services.is it possible when i installed sp1 it did something to the folder?.after sp1 i ran bootvis.exe as the service pack slowed down boot time quite a bit.

Yes, some people have reported the Prefetch folder disappearing after installing SP1 - not sure how or why.

Try creating a folder named Prefetch in the Windows folder, run BootVis, and see if the folder "fills up". Make the folder "read only". Please come back and let us know what happens.
