Windows 7: Prefetch data deleted.

Prefetch data deleted.

I am currently running the 7022 32bit build. For some unexplainable reason my prefetch data gets deleted everytime I restart. Resulting in me losing all changes I make to my system.

Anyone out there with suggestions?

Regards.

possibly a spyware or cleaner program your using ?

maybe have a look in your registry ?

the key that sets the flag is in the registry is : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

the key "enable prefetcher" on mine is set to value 3 which is "prefetch all"

has this value changed in your registry ?

the values used in windows prefetch are :
0 - Disable Prefetch in Windows

1 - Prefetch only Application Launch files

2 - Prefetch only Boot files

3 - Prefetch all

If your unfamiliar or unsure of using regedit then don't
