Hi I have win 7, CCleaner, kaspersky 2011 & tuneup utility 2011 the tuneup says "prefetch data deleted" pls help me how to troubleshoot this problem


It is absolutely safe to delete the Prefetch Data. Each time you turn on your computer, Windows keeps track of the way your computer starts and which programs you commonly opened. Windows saves this information as a number of small files in the prefetch folder. The next time you turn on your computer, Windows refers to these files to help speed the start-up process. You may also change the setting of Tuneup Utility not to clear the prefetch data. Rest assure that it is safe either way and doesnt have much impact on high speed systems.

Let me know if any further clarification is required.

Good Luck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

have ran tuneup utililites and have a message saying the files in the prefetch folder have been deleted by me or a program its not me so what program would delete these files as the pc is permanantly heavily defragmented and running slow.no malware or virus on the pc that i am aware of as i have checked with malware bytes and avira


Tuneup utility progs are great if you know what you are doing, unfortunately most people don't..

The prefetch folder loads part of a prog into the system memory so that it can be opened quicker hence the term. This will slow the PC down if there is not enough memory installed to cope.

Malwarebytes is a very good prog provided you remmber to uopdate the database before the scan. Avira I cannot comment on never having used it but if in doubt you can run a virus scan from here
