    my tune up utility says my prefetch folder is gone and it is important for my laptop to increase the start up..how will i solve this problem?..i didnt delete anythin in my laptop so i was wondering how this happened and what am i going to do about it?


    1. Make sure that the task scheduler is enabled. If you are un-sure, go to Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/ Click on Services/ Then in the list of services make sure the Task Scheduler is enabled & restart the service by clicking on Start. Close the Services Folder & go back to desktop.

    2. Then go to START/RUN/ and TYPE IN cmd (without the quotes) CLICK OK. This will bring up the DOS Command screen.

    3. You will need to copy and paste this entry in at the flashing cursor
     rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks (without quotes) and press ENTER.

    4. Now reboot three times and your Prefetch folder will be rebuilt. (It takes 3 reboots for the prefetch folder to work out what it needs)

    cant clear memory sticks .2 MB plug in sticks onto which I've copied movies cant be cleared.


    Try this first, but if this doesn't work you can modify these settings in BIOS. I will give you specific instructions if this doesn't work. THIS TECHNIQUE DOES NOT REQUIRE A SYSTEM REBOOT

    Steps to follow:
    1. Locate an empty spot on your desktop, right click on your mouse and select – new shortcut.
    2. Type “%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks” without the quotations in the box and click next.
    3. Name your shortcut “XP Clear RAM,” and click finish…. All done!…
    Now, run it!!
