Windows 7

First : Every time I launch TuneUp Utilities 2010 , It shows me the following error about deleted prefetch folder :

Second - I found something important related to my problem:
Each time I use my hard drives (copying, cutting, writing, downloading files on any of my 3 hard disks) , the speed of memory leak , increasing.(the memory usage goes up more quickly)
It seems that the source of my problem is related to H.D.Ds.
I already defragged all of my hard disks but it didn't help.
Any other solution ?
