In this article they get you most of the way there. The mistake many of these make is they neglect to tell you that "EnablePrefetcher" and "EnableSuperfetch" should always be set to the same number. I have mine both set to 2 to only cache boot files, on both Vista and Windows 7.
It works the same way in both. Just remember when you follow the article to set them both the same. To get back to system default, just set them both to 3. Change SuperFetch to Only Cache System Boot Files in Vista - How-To Geek
edit: the usual provisos apply. Before messing with your registry you should back it up by making a Restore Point, a backup image of your system partition, or using a utility like ERUNT.
