Windows It must suck to be a Windows developer. So you already have an entire legion of misguided folk hating your work for no reason (on top of the people hating your work for legitimate reasons), and then a company comes along spreading clear misinformation about Windows' memory usage, based on that company's performance monitoring software. To make matters worse, when said company is called out on its errors, it decides to publish the usage information of an Ars Technica editor's computer. As such, it is advisable to uninstall the software in question.

Superfetch

Superfetch is interesting. I know that have throttled it for Win7 so it can work better with netbooks.

But I actually preferred how it worked in Vista since I have at least 3GB RAM.

Does anyone know if Superfetch can be adjusted to work like in Vista?

No, but generally Superfetch in Win7 is more effective than it was in Vista, despite the fact that it may prefetch less data in some scenarios:
