I don't know where people keep getting this but this is one of the worst pieces of advice ever put on the internet. DO NOT DO THIS EVER! This will continuously delete the contents of the Prefetch folder and slow down how long windows XP loads and all your applications load. Deleting the contents of the Prefetch folder is a Myth! NEVER DO THIS!
