And so you know, I DID read about SuperFetch. Don't assume I didn't. Just as you probably know a lot more about computers than I give you credit for, I know more than you give me credit for.
Best to leave it enable for if you need it, It isn't using any CPU Resources and Hardly any Ram

Why do you feel you need to disable it. Its not used until you enable readyboost when you put in a compatible flash drive. Simplest solution would be to ignore it.
