editor's review




Prefetch clean and control is a small software application designed specifically for helping you clean the prefetch folder using a single click. The prefetch directory stores information about your Windows operating system, more specifically data about the way your computer starts and which utilities you commonly open.

It also offers support for a feature that allows you to disable the prefetch monitoring mode and proves to be useful especially when you want to save some space on the disk. However, you should take into consideration that by clearing the prefetch data, Windows and programs may take longer to open next time you turn on your PC.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to clean the prefetch directory on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Simple looks

You are welcomed by a compact layout that embeds only a few configuration settings that you can play with. All dedicated parameters are integrated into a single panel, so tweaking them proves to be an easy task.

Configuration settings

Prefetch clean and control includes a dedicated button in the main panel for helping you quickly trigger the cleaning process.

What’s more, it offers support for several tweaking parameters that help you disable the prefetch mode or monitor only application or boot file launching operations. Additionally, you may resort to the Windows default option for keeping an eye on both application and boot file launching processes.

It is important to mention that in order to make the tool apply the desired changes to your system, you are required to reboot your computer.

Bottom line

To sum things up, Prefetch clean and control combines ease of use with a handy suite of features in order to help you clear the prefetch data and control the prefetch parameters.
