I guess I should have been more specific. I am a Computer Engineer with 10 years of Microsoft experience. So while I appreciate your advice, I am fairly sure this isn't an issue of prefetching.
*This is not meant to be a smart retort, just trying to give some background*
My machine becomes nearly unresponsive. Apps can load, but they take 2-3x longer. After a reboot, everything is just fine. I am also pretty sure superfetch/prefetched RAM doesn't show as used, but not 100% sure on that. I wouldn't be concerned or have noticed except for the fact peformance took a dive. Which I should have mentioned first
