Windows SuperFetch is a technology in Windows Vista and onwards that is often misunderstood. I decided to delve into this technology to see what it is all about, and to dispel some of the myths surrounding this feature.

A Windows-like registry would be faster, but it is easy to corrupt, and difficult to repair, as many PC users can testify.


I see this mentioned often, but rarely see it materialize post Windows 2000. Reverting to a previous version of the registry is as easy as running a system restore, which takes all of 2-3 minutes to do. It's still more brittle than it should be, but has come a long way since the Windows 98 days.
