Incorrect tweaking of the prefetch folder

Recommended Posts

I found several posts in this forum about the prefetch folder and I know this option in CCleaner.

Deleting it makes the XP-PC faster is a popular fallacy.

A myth is that the user should delete the prefetch folder contents to speed up the computer. If this is done, Windows will need to re-create all the prefetch files again, thereby slowing down Windows during boot and program starts until the prefetch files are created.

We only remove prefetch folder items that are tied to the spyware itself - we leave the rest alone.
