I recently follow a tip to remove unwanted program data for startup in C:/windows/prefetch. The article told me just to delete the entire contents of the folder. yet as of one week or so none of the startup data of the programs now returned and the startup time has increased.

andre, it's pretty much unnecessary to empty the prefetch folder. It is designed to refresh its entries over a period of time. I can't imaginne your startup time improving, as the prefetch cache improves startup performance.

Try running BootVis, or disable unnecessary services, and startup items in msconfig if you're looking to speed up your start time.:)

Had you used any other tweaks to disable or change the prefetch? as you use programs the data should come back..is layout.ini there at all

sometimes it takes windows up to 3 days before it does an optimization and recreated the layout and such.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
