this is a prefetch reg hack. I basically got it from here
So this is what I did. I crated a system restore point. Went into the Windows folder. Made a backup of the prefetch folder. Then I deleted the contents of th prefetch folder, and restarted my computer
Ran my most used app (firefox)
I waited until my hard drive had stopped
Start, Run, regedit, and then went here:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\EnablePrefetcher
0 - to disable prefetching
1 - to prefetch application launch files
2 - to prefetch boot files
3 - to prefetch as many files as possible
Was 3, set it to 2 making sure that Decimal was selected
went back to the prefetch folder (C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch) and deleted regedit.
My boot up is noticeably faster now.
