Clean Prefetch Data

The prefetch directory can get full of junk and obsolete links which can slow down yourcomputer noticeably.
I would suggest that you do this once a month or so to improve thespeed.
Do not follow this on a daily basis as prefetching of most commonly used programs will speed up the execution of those programs.
To perform this trick go to:C(SystemDrive):/windows/prefetch, and delete everything and reboot

Cleaning the Prefetch folder is a Myth and will REDUCE performance. Unused prefetch files do nothing but take up a small amount of disk space and are automatically cleaned at 128 entries down to the 32 most used app's prefetch files by Windows. Cleaning the folder manually will cripple all applications and windows load times.
