Windows 7: Windows 7 HP (OEM) Help & Support Question

Windows 7 HP (OEM) Help & Support Question

I did a "Help & Support" search for "Superfetch" and came up with something to do with IE. Did a search for "Prefetch" and got a correct answer.
However, in "services" (services.msc), there is no "Prefetch" service, but there is a
"Superfetch" service. Am I missing something ??
Just a curious question, again.

Prefetching functions are handled by a different Windows component.

Although, "killing" Superfetch service will prevent system from creating the ".pf" files necessary for the Prefetching function.

Hey people. I own a HP HDX-18 Notebook (it has 4GB RAM), and I installed Windows 7 (64 bit) not too long ago. The laptop was being problematic giving me a blue screen of death with a 'Power_Driver_State_Failure' message, so I figured it could be problems with driver compatibility. I formatted...
