    take off the prefletch folder.
    emptying the prefletch folder will slow you down and not make it any faster.
    it changes fast enough anyway

    I'm planning to replace all kinds of cleaners with one single solution : history, registry, ...
    It takes too much time to run all these softwares and sometimes it's risky also.
    If I don't succeed, I will do it the old-fashioned way. :)

    I agree with the lodore's prefetch thoughts. I'm not sure where the idea clearing it causes speed to improve but that never made any sense to me at all.

    That said, I suppose that if you really want to cover your PC usage tracks, clearing the prefetch would be something one should probably do...

    The line [del /f /s /q %windir%\prefetch\*.*] for example state's;

    Delete ALL [*.*] file's including any sub-folder's [/s], inside the window's prefetch directory[%windir%\prefetch],
    regardless of their read only attribute's [/f], and without removal confirmation [/q].

    Percent variable's (concerning directories and command instruction's) are utilized for the purpose of bringing about a "common" ground between typical and atypical drive value's. Relating this to your proposed batch file mean's %windir% would corrospond to the same location on your system as mine, even though your install's drive might be labeled C, mine F.

    The key to using these type file's is understanding their intention, including the fact that they're not alway's compatible between different operating structure's. Could you possibly provide a pointer to the original source?

    nope; ccleaner also clears MRUs and it includes a registry cleaner feature as well.
