    There is strong objection at at least two sites I have found to "CCleaner's" recent inclusion of the option to delete "Prefetch" entries from the "XP" system.

    See "System>Old Prefetch data" in the CCleaner menu. It appears that this item should not be checked.

    Thanks for the "heads up". I checked several sites thru Google and most agree this can be a problem. I have now unchecked "Old Prefetch Data" and will try it that way. Appreciate the info.
