Windows 7: Slower reboot with Superfetch !

26 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 7 32 bit

In Vista I saw benefit to only caching boot files. But after a long time running Windows 7 the same way I tried making a small page file and setting the registry settings to the default pair of '3's. Programs I use frequently are favored slightly. Programs I seldom use I notice a slight lag. It does make a difference.

Try setting Superfetch service to Automatic Delayed Start. That got rid of the tiny lag I noticed when booting. Not so much the boot was slow but the drive was kind of busy as Superfetch wants to start gathering stats a bit too soon. At least on my setup it's smoother with delayed start.

Superfetch and the SSD
I constantly hear that Superfetch should be turned off when you run the OS on an SSD. I totally fail to see the point. RAM is still a lot faster than the fastest SSD and a good pack of cached stuff enhances performance. So why would anybody want to miss that opportunity. The only argument I...

Have they changed its code in some fundamental way? I always used to have to disable it eventually on vista as it was very greedy with ram, quite frequently leaving me with very little head room. But, on W7 it seems incredibly well behaved. It's almost as if is not enabled.
