1. Read http://tweak.us/xp4.html#prefetch The tip to delete it, is over-rated. Go ahead, reboot and you are done with that.
2. "winnet.exe, which is an adware .."
http://sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/pf/adware.commonname.html notes the usual. But in the future, call out the NAME of the Adware rather than just the filename.
I have found a folder in windows called prefetch. most of the files end in .pf. In there is a file called winnet.exe, which is an adware programme that i am trying to get rid of.
1. What is prefetch for?
2. Is it safe to delete the winnet file?
Thanks in advance for any help.
