Depending on what procedure you have in place to manage your cookies, you may not want to mark that entry. "Prefetch" is a file Windows keeps to speed loading of your most commoly used programs (128 of them). Cleaning that will do no harm, but will make your applications a little slower to load the next 3 times or so.
While a "cleanup" procedure will help some, if you really want to speed up Windows, you will need to learn about your background processes and services so that you can control them to suit your peculiar needs. When I open Taskmanager, I know what all the entries in there are doing. This took some learning on my part, but now I can quicky identify processes that are unfamiliar and find out what they are and what they are doing on my system. You can too.
To get started, I have posted much of what I have learned here: http://doc1101.vox.com/
