    i think prefetch helps windows run faster or something because it pre-fetches information

    edit
    oh..........

    What is the prefetch folder?

    It holds like temp rar files you have run. stuff like that, like you open a word file from a rar and try and save it itll be in the temp fodler.

    run> temp
    run> %temp%

    both hold 'temporary files" and shit just hold crap . sometimes your old porn pictures and child porn pictures @Dead Bones Brook will be found in those folder(s) because your browser basically saves them to your PC to load up webpages faster? :S doesn't apply only to browsing, but other software.

    I just clear them all, un-necessary, if don't clear them I just do my weekly OS format.

    @Jabuuty671, doesn't a weekly OS format delete everything on your computer?
