Windows 7: ReadyBoost issue

ReadyBoost issue

I don't need ReadyBoost but would like to find out why this is coming up. It happens with any drive. It's not the drive. It's something I have disabled. Anybody know what it might be? I have been optimizing my system for my SSD and I'm pretty sure it's happening because I have turned something off in the registry or services. Maybe someone will know what service is associated with the readyboost function. It might be Superfetch. I have it disabled in services and the registry. Would that cause this? Thanks.

Yes, it's because you've disabled superfetch.

This is solved. Maybe it will help someone some day. It IS superfetch in the registry. I had it set to 0 and it has to be set to 1. Here it is if anyone needs it.
