Tweak for : Windows Vista
SuperFetch is a new feature in Vista that understands which applications you use most, and preloads these applications into memory, so your system is more responsive. SuperFetch uses a complex prioritization scheme that can even differentiate which applications you use most often and when you use them.

Now, you can change the way that SuperFetch behaves by making a change in the registry. This is helpful when you want to alter SuperFetch or disable SuperFetch completely.
