EnableSuperfetch and EnablePrefetcher settings Vista/W7 ??
« on: December 05, 2009, 04:21:42 PM »
Has anyone a definitive source on the meanings for EnableSuperfetch and EnablePrefetcher values in the Prefetch Parameters?


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]

I see all kinds of conflicting statements on web sites.  Most say that EnablePrefetcher value means: 0 no caching, 1 cache applications, 2 cache boot files, 3 cache both

and those sites usually say nothing about the EnableSuperfetch value.

Some sites have it the opposite where the values 0 to 3 are for EnableSuperfetch.

I've even seen some that suggest you set EnablePrefetcher to 5.  The only thing that looked like it mentioned both keys on Microsoft site was in a foreign language(couldn't figure out which language it was to paste it into a translator.)

Anyone have the definitive source on these settings?

No idea, but maybe Google's "detect language" option in its translator system could sort out the language issue?
