    Superfetch has stopped working

    Not really sure what I should do.

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
    My computer is an HP Pavilion a600f

    When I start up I get this message:
    Superfetch has stopped working.
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: svchost.exe_SysMain
    Application Version: 6.0.6001.18000
    Application Timestamp: 47919291
    Fault Module Name: sysmain.dll
    Fault Module Version: 6.0.6002.18005
    Fault Module Timestamp: 49e04208
    Exception Code: c0000005
    Exception Offset: 0000000000028ff5
    OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
    Locale ID: 1033
    Additional Information 1: 570e
    Additional Information 2: f87d907f6c95b3755cbb4bbb0beffc03
    Additional Information 3: 2633
    Additional Information 4: 00b160c131b062ec9ae01ef07ef1effe

    Here's what I have done so far:

    First I ran chkdsk /f /r -- solved nothing.

    Then I did a memory diagnostic -- it found a memory error. But it was a simple fix -- just had to reseat my memory. I thought "Okay, this should solve the problem."

    But it didn't. So I ran chkdsk /f again (not sure if I should do /r or not again. It takes forever, and I'd like to know if that'd solve my problem or not before I try again).

    So at this point, I'm not really sure what to do. I've read somewhere to delete the files in the prefetch folder, but I was also told this probably wouldn't work for me.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Okay. I looked in eventvwr, and the first error seems to be this:

    Faulting application svchost.exe_SysMain, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47919291, faulting module sysmain.dll, version 6.0.6002.18005, time stamp 0x49e04208, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0000000000028ff5, process id 0xf48, application start time 0x01cc71539ce261e9.

    I also did sfc/scannow and it could not fix two errors (I'm not sure if either of these are the problem or not)

    I don't have a Vista Installation CD (The computer didn't come with one) so I'm not really sure what I should do at this point.

    You could make a recovery disk from your recovery partition. Else you can get one this way: How to Make a Windows Vista Repair Disk If You Don’t Have One - How-To Geek

    I'm not sure if I have a recovery partition or not... I think I do -- but I'm not sure.

    Question in the meantime though -- is it safe to run my computer still? I got the memory error fixed, and so far, my computer has no trouble running outside of the Superfetch error when I log on. (Other services have problems at startup, but work fine otherwise).

    Just back up your stuff (this should always be done) and you could use the computer.
