Windows 10: have you disable Superfetch on your ssd installation?
have you disable Superfetch on your ssd installation?
have you disabled Superfetch ?
disabling the service Superfetch and regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters
Windows 10 should do it automatically once it identifies an SSD boot drive. It might require some time/number of reboots before it acts.
mine is Dword:0x0000003
does it really matter with 16g ram?
after doing some searching I found this article about enabling it for boot files only.

You could use this as well, but as stated before, on SSD Windows should set it automatically.
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters" /v "EnableSuperfetch" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Superfetch was one of several features that were brought in to help speed up the process on slow computers. Same with pagefile. Microsoft should really spend some time re-evaluating them.
I set them for boot files only. We'll see how that works.
I'm sorry but you are incorrect I think. SuperFetch is only an elaboration of the XP Prefetcher task (What is Windows SuperFetch). It would be unwise to change it.
The pagefile isn't generally interesting any more (since 20 years or so). You need a small one (400 MB) to create crash dumps but that is it. It was never meant for performance - it was to allow paging of agreed virtual memory somewhere when there was no space in RAM and only if the need arose. If you have enough RAM your pagefile will not be used.
Even up to 10 years ago I used to force certain (small) tables (currency exchange rates and so on that didn't change much) into memory as I thought I knew better than the OS - not any more. The guys who write memory management algorithms are far clever than me.
Honestly, unless you have a PHD in math I'd let it be. What is used often will be in dynamic memory not on disk anyway.
i renable the service Superfetch to automatic (i guess it's the default,isn't it? )
after several reboots it's still on
it's odd that the folder
I disabled it manually. No need for a thing like Superfetch if the os is installed on a fast SSD.
Superfetch monitors which applications you use the most and preloads these into your system memory (RAM) so they'll be ready when you need them.
RAM (memory) will always be faster than a SSD, but yeah Superfetch probably won't be need with a SSD since you probably wouldn't notice any difference.
Superfetch (Memory Prefetcher)
It'll be interesting to see some benchmark numbers with Superfetch enabled and disabled.
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad R500 laptop on which Win 10 hasbeen installed. The laptop was given to me just to try Win 10. I dislike usingthe touch pad and want to disable it but I can't do it. One way that issupposed to work is to go to Control Panel...
It's making my netbook lag (100% CPU) randomly, probably while scanning in background, is there a way to disable it (Windows defender is already turned off)
EDIT: noticed Windows defender enables itself after a reboot, is there a way...
I keep getting this pop up everytime I boot the pc, I have turned off every One Drive setting I can find, how do I stop it ?
On the start menu I do not like that 10 is searching the web for results. I've found the entries in group policy as shown below but that doesn't work.:mad: How do I disable web search from the start menu.
Disable web results in Windows 10 search...

With the earlier builds, I had UAC disabled in the registry( just as I do for my host machine Windows 8.0 Pro) and everything worked fine. It was in your sister forum eightforums tutorial that I learned how to disable UAC in Windows 8.
