Tuneup utilities prefetch data deleted windows 7 slow

Basically, the prefetcher is a Windows component that speeds up the boot process and start times of programs by prefetching data.

I recommend you never delete the prefetch data.

If you or another program delete prefetch data or the folder, this can slow the computer down until the prefetch data is rebuilt. Windows rebuilds this each time on reboot and during program start ups.

If you are using a cleanup utility, turn off any options that delete prefetch data. In CCleaner, this option is unchecked automatically. TuneUp 10 does not have an option for prefetch data and does not seem to delete this data. You may receive a message when using the program that states, "prefetch data deleted" which is informing you the prefetch is empty.

Prefetch data deleted tuneup windows 7 how can i solved?


1. Turn off the option to clean the Prefetch in Tune-Up Utilities

2. Windows will need to re-create all the prefetch files again, thereby slowing down Windows during boot until the new prefetch files are created

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!

Low space

Have you tried clearing the "Temp" and the "Prefetch" folders?
Go to Start -> Run

Type - "temp" (without the quotes) in the run dialog and delete all files with Shift+Delete.
Repeat the same operation with the prefetch folder. (Type prefetch instead of temp now)

It should be able to clear just a few MBs.

Also, I would recommend uninstalling any unwanted software that you may have installed on your system.

Also, as it is evident from your above post, you have been saving a lot of stuff in the My Documents folder. I would hereby recommend saving large files on the C Drive(D) drive so a balance would be maintained.
