In Win2000 and XP , the layout of bootfiles are described in "%windir%\Prefetch\NTOSBOOT-B00DFAAD.pf"
Not on Win2000, and I think the file only contains a list of files used by the kernel, not files used by other applications.
if you can figure that out , you can not only optimize the OS boot , but also program load, by reading the other prefretch files as well.
Yes. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it!
