    WinXP Home. What exactly is the C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch directory and the pf
    files held there and what function do they have. All these files are old and
    dated to a time before I disabled the Task Scheduler service. Do I need
    these files and do I really need Task Scheduler running in the background
    even if I do not have any scheduled tasks. Thanks.

    No. Open the task scheduler and go to the 'Advanced' tab.
    Highlight 'Stop Using Task Scheduler'.
