Service Host Superfetch predicts which programs you’ll use at which times, then preloads those apps into your RAM.

  • Superfetch preloads apps (and boot files) into your RAM when it thinks you’re going to use them. It’s designed to prevent Windows from needing to dip into the slow hard disk as often.
  • Superfetch learns as you continue to use your computer. As your habits change and you use different programs more or less frequently, Superfetch adapts to your needs.
  • Superfetch’s algorithm will predict which apps you’ll be using when. Superfetch is able to predict up to three apps at any one time.
  • Superfetch knows how to prioritize active programs over background tasks, such as defragmenting your hard drive. Windows Service Host Superfetch will run these tasks while your computer is idle.
