    That one function is safe it is the other stuff it does that can be deadly to Vista. Uninstall it and use my batch file instead. Any other third party tool is going to do the same thing the batch file does.

    Hi Gary

    Just got a question about your boot defrag batch file. I've run it a few times now after various changes to start up programs, and each time after a defrag the boot time will normally go much higher than before, but will then come down alot after 2 or 3 more reboots, often to a time shorter than before. Do you know why this happens? Is it because superfetch and prefetch are 'learning' the new boot order?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think that is a logical conclusion. Without being able to monitor the boot up with something like Process Explorer, it is hard to say. But the symptoms you describe are in line with the normal workings of the prefetch opertion.
