Whoa, if you think that's even slightly true you have some serious learning to do about how Vista works. You seem to be confusing the indexing feature with the superfetch feature.


You assume too much. Now since your convinced I know nothing of Vista, could you please show me how this feature saved you so much time for the trade off of making your system less responsive constantly?

Keep in mind I have used Vista, and I'm willing to bet I can hold my weight in this topic. I've seen Superfetch in action and also disabled when running programs like Photoshop, and I'm still prepared to say there's no real noticeable difference in loading my documents and when starting up Photoshop (which I use often) compared to the way XP handled it. But I sure as heck noticed the hard drive not acting crazy.

Oh and do make my day and reply with you not being guilty of that just now. I need a laugh. So, I'm ready to receive your infinite wisdom, rather than a passing negative comment that makes you look foolish, and benchmarks to prove otherwise. And do expect me to refute them.
