Windows 7 SuperFetch will not disable.

Hello

I am trying to Disable Windows 7 Super Fetch do stop Windows 7 caching ____ that it will never use.

I have disabled the Windows 7 SUperFetch service and also modified the following Registry keys.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]
"EnableSuperfetch"=dword:00000000
"EnablePrefetcher"=dword:00000000
"EnableBootTrace"=dword:00000000

Windows 7 seems to wait 5 mins after I boot then it goes ape filling up my 4GB ram.

I have used SysInternals RamMap ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/s.../ff700229.aspx ) to see what is in the standby ram and it is useless files like zip files that I have extracted and other files.

I would rather leave my unused RAM free for games and software development but Windows 7 does not want to allow me to disable the standby ram.

Thanks In Advance

Windows 7 Superfetch is in fact better than Vista’s, it doesn’t start caching instantly the moment you log in. It would wait a few minutes and then start loading the your system’s memory with the applications you use most often. In order to increase the performance of Windows 7, the priority of superfetch has been slightly reduced.

We do not recommend disabling SuperFetch in Windows 7, but if you are a gamer who needs slightly more memory or just an advanced user who doesn’t need SuperFetch, then you can disable it.

The process is very straightforward, load the Services window by typing services.msc in Start Search. Once open, locate the SuperFetch key.
Now double-click the SuperFetch key and it will open the Properties dialog window. Here you can Disable it by changing the dropdown to Disabled. There is another interesting option called Automatic(Delayed Start), this will start superfetching after quite some time during startup. To stop superfetching immediately, hit the Stop button.

Like I said above, this is not recommended but it might be helpful to someone looking to disable it.

I have already disabled  the Superfetch service. THAT DID NOT WORK, WINDOWS IS STILL FETCHING ____ TO RAM.

I have also tried to disable Superfetch via the registry but no luck.

I think this is a Windows 7 BUG (Always load Superfetch).

Please post a screenshot of the performance monitor and download RAMMap [1] and run it. Now save the data as a RMP file. Zip the RMP file and upload the zip to your SkyDrive [2] and post a link here.

I can't upload the RMP file because it reveals private files/licence keys in memory so here is a screenshot showing a sample of the files in standy:http://www.fearby.com/temp/Windows_7_SuperFetch_Bug/Broken-SuperFetch-Sample-Of-Files-In-Stanby.jpg

When logging a support ticket Microsoft say my Windows 7 Professional Product Identification (PID) has expired.  I purchased Windows 7 Upgrade for $49 throughhttp://www.itsnotcheatingcom.au and Microsoft do not offer support for this product?

Come on Microsoft do not drop to Apple's level of support.
