How to stop Dfrgntfs.exe from running automatically

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hey there Experts,

I am having difficulty with dfrgntfs.exe.

It is running automatically, and I cannot disable it.

I already have a problem with the computers memory or something.

I am really no technical person.

I will really appreciate it if someone will be able to fix this for me.

Thanks in advance.

Win XP normally monitors all files that were used during loading and when you start the application.

Win XP optimizes boot files and applications to decrease the loading time when Win XP starts or when you open an application that why defrag.exe or dfrgntfs.exe always running.

If you want to disable this service or the prefetching data of win XP then you have to edit the registry and navigate to these entries.

Open regedit through RUN window.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftDfrgBootOpt imizeFunction and double click ENABLE key. Change the value to N.

Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetContro lSession ManagerMemoryManagementPrefetchParameters

Double click EnablePrefetcher and change the value to 0.
