Will that disable the prefetch? If so, it will be fine.

You will be fine. If you are afraid it will crash your system back your registry up. If you dont want to edit the registry, just delete the prefetch folders before you reboot every once in a while.

You can download this program:

And it'll do it automatically, I've used it, and it gives you the options and tells you what it's doing.
