tuneup utilities prefetch data deleted windows 7 slow


I'm getting the Prefetch Data Deleted 'problem' on my tuneup 10 - it's telling me that because the prefetch is empty...yes...but my register is telling me both the Prefetch and Superfetch are set to '3' which is the correct, or default, setting for the feature. There is a program deleting my prefetch data and I want to find which one it is. Opera browser collects application data for offline work, I disabled this cache, and still I get the message from tuneup. Any other programs or browsers I can check?
