    I read on TweakXP's website that it is a good idea to clean out your prefetch folder once a month. I'm just wondering if this is a good idea and if I will run into any problems with programs if I decided to clear it out.

    Programs usually don't rely on the prefetches, the OS uses it when loading a program to speed it up the loading times. Feel free to delete it. You can also use TuneXP 1.5 to do it, and a few other tweaks. Be sure to look at the help file, it describes what each of the tweaks do.
