Superfetch?

My Windows 7 keeps switching from Aero theme to the regular theme. Every time it switches from Aero to regular, it says Superfetch stopped working.
Any clues what could be bothering Superfetch? D:

Yes it could be a compatibility problem with your usb memory stick, or is that ready boost? Think I got mixed up.

USB Memory stick?
haha...
what? >_>'
I don't have one in.

EDITT: Heyy. I fixed it!
I just searched for updates and I updated my Video Driver.
At least I think I fixed it, it's been 10 minutes without a switch. O_o

You could try disabling superfetch in services to see if that stops it.

Hello tusharaggarwal,

Welcome to seven forums.

To disable; Start orb/type 'services' (no quotes). Hit enter or click on services on the list. Scroll down to superfetch/right click/properties. Hit the stop button and then select disabled from the dropdown list.

Is superfetch the same as readyboost? I searched Windows Help for it and did not get any matches.

Superfetch and the SSD
I constantly hear that Superfetch should be turned off when you run the OS on an SSD. I totally fail to see the point. RAM is still a lot faster than the fastest SSD and a good pack of cached stuff enhances performance. So why would anybody want to miss that opportunity. The only argument I...

Is there a way to make superfetch only "fetch" applications and not the entire movie I watched the other day?

Have they changed its code in some fundamental way? I always used to have to disable it eventually on vista as it was very greedy with ram, quite frequently leaving me with very little head room. But, on W7 it seems incredibly well behaved. It's almost as if is not enabled.
