The Prefetch on my computer is not working. What can I do to get it to

How do you know it isn't working?
Make sure the Task Scheduler service is set to Automatic and running...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK
Scroll down to and double click Task Scheduler | Startup type: Automatic |
Apply | Click the Start button | OK | Close Services
Check this registry setting...
Start | Run | Type: regedit | Click OK
Navigate to >>
Look for EnablePrefetcher in the right pane, if the value is not 3,
Double click EnablePrefetcher and change the value to 3.
0 = disabled
1 = Application launch prefetching
2 = Bootprefetching
3 = Both prefetching
3 seems to be the preferred option.
This will take effect on next reboot.
It will take three boots to rebuild the Prefetch file.
Hope this helps. Let us know.
