event viewer help

ok, so I shut down the prefetch service on my PC. however now I event viewer is loaded with errors and warnings about readyboot no having enough space etc. now I read all over online that readboot is no big deal and Microsoft says just to ignore it and that it causes 0 loss in performance. so how can I disable this event from showing in event viewer?

Your specs show 8 gigs of ram. Why are you using Read Boost and turning off prefetch.
In my opinion that is not a smart move. Ram being used is a good thing. That is why it is there.

What is the prefetch folder?

Understand ReadyBoost and whether it will Speed Up your System

im NOT using ready boost. the error is readyBOOT which is prefetch service being disabled. its disabled because this is strictly a gaming and video editing rig. that's all.

I would let windows manage the memory. I agree with Laybackbear.

The only instance when you want to disable superfetch is on a solid state drive. (Your specs show a mechanical hd)

But to simply answer your question, you can not disable the log in event viewer.

I also have a SSD and keep Superfetch enabled.

You could also go to this Tutorial by Brink and go to #5 and make sure Readyboost is turned off.
