Although this system was invented to optimize computer performance for the benefit of the user, problems often arise with it. First, constant background work uses some of the processor and RAM resources. Second, even using SuperFetch does not eliminate the problems with loading programs into RAM. If your computer is quite weak and has a small amount of RAM, then you will not notice the difference in performance.
The third and most important factor is the slower computer startup. This service first starts the operating system in the RAM zone, then starts it. It is easy to determine this procedure: when you turn on the computer, the hard disk runs at full load for 1-2 minutes.
The last point that causes users to disable SuperFetch on Windows 10 is the issue of games. Because modern games use a lot of RAM and constantly load/download data, the optimization process only slows down the computer. As a result, computer performance decreases significantly.
The security issue
Is the service so important that without it the computer will become unstable or will not fully charge? In fact, you can disable service host superfetch on Windows 10 without any restrictions. However, it is recommended to stop the process only in cases where you have problems with the operation of the computer (high constant load on the hard disk or full RAM). If turning off SuperFetch has no effect, then you can turn it on again.
Enable/Disable Superfetch By 3 Ways –
Method 1: Services application
So let’s talk about self-closure. For the first method, we need the Standard Services application, which can be launched by searching Windows 10 or the Run window, using the services command.
In the list that opens, find the name SuperFetch. For convenience, you can sort the list alphabetically. After that, right-click the service twice to open the properties.
In the property window, pay attention to the “Start type” line. Here you need to set the item “Off” and save the changes. The service will stop automatically and will not start when the computer is turned on again.
Method two: Registry Editor
The next way to permanently disable SuperFetch on Windows 10 is a little more complicated. First, we need to open the registry editor. This can be done by searching or the “Run” window by the regedit command.
First, go to the SYSTEM branch and open the CurrentControlSet directory. Here we look for the Control folder and step by step we go to MemoryManagement – this is the end point. Click the PrefetchParameters subsection. On the right side of the window, create a DWORD parameter (32 bits) and name it EnableSuperfetch. Set the properties to 0 and save the changes. After that, we restart the computer.
Method three: command line
Finally, the last way to disable the SuperFetch service in Windows 10. You can use it through the regular command line or Windows PowerShell. First, launch the window using the cmd command from the search bar on the taskbar. To deactivate the service, enter the line stop SysMain & sc config SysMain start \ u003d disabled “and use it with the Enter key. A message will appear on the screen saying that the service has been stopped successfully.
