    vista prefetch folder

    I looked in my prefetch folder and found this: AgAppLaunch. Does anyone know
    what this is and what it does?

    It is a database file that increments when you run other
    applications--it is used by Windows to order files on the harddrive
    during defragmentation so that the most frequently used files are placed
    on the fastest parts of the drive

    Leave it alone.
