    Prefetch in Windows

    Why is Windows running random programs in the background? E.g., SEARCHFILTERHOST.EXE, SEARCHPROTOCOLHOST.EXE, UPNP.EXE, its like running every 10 - 20 minutes. The mouse icons shows a loading circle when a random program is running.


  2. Prefetch files

    Hi Phil,

    Windows uses this feature to start your application faster. If you delete this, your application will take time to load because they're not preloaded. Windows will have to create .pf file again for Preloading. We suggest that you let Windows manage Prefetch
    on it's own.

    Don't hesitate to update us if you need further assistance.

    Best regards,
