Cleaning the Prefetch Directory

WindowsXP has a new feature called Prefetch. Initally this may seem very handy as this keeps a shortcut to recently used programs.

However it can fill up with old and obsolete programs.  Which really means that you are losing disk space and also slowing down your boot times.  Deleting the files in this directory does no harm to your computer,  and should be cleaned on a regular basis  (Say once a month)

To clean this periodically go to:

Start / Run / Prefetch
Press Ctrl-A to highlight all the files
Delete them
