It's built-in to Windows 7 and works without you having to do anything.

Hi, here are some simple steps to enable superfetch:
1- Click start and search for ( services.msc ).
2- When window appears, scroll down until you see ( superfetch ) double click on it.
3- When window appears you will see a category named ( startup type ), here you will see four options: ( 1- Automatic (delayed-start), 2- Automatic, 3- Manual & 4- Disabled ).
4- Set it to ( Automatic ) then click Apply then OK.
5- Now you can relax an enjoy a faster computing experience.
P.S. Superfetch takes some time to learn the way you use your computer which means that you may or may not see an immediate increase in speed, but your computer will get progressively faster over time as it learns from you.
P.P.S. After following the steps I listed above, you may very well realise that it was already set to ( Automatic ) which means that it was working all along.
I hope this helps you out.

It sounds like you might have a corrupt installation of Windows. I would recommend running the System File Checker (SFC) to see if it can repair your system files and also a CHKDSK to see if you can recover any lost files.
- Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
- Type the following command, and then press ENTER:sfc /scannowThe sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
Once you run SFC, click here and follow the instructions for running a CHKDSK (check disk).
If neither of those resolve the issue, the next steps would logically be: a) Run hard disk test & b) Reinstall (recover) operating system.
