    What is vcache exactly?

    Someone recomended changing my vcache for a slow internet problem, unfortuneaty I lost track of the tread. Now i'm wondering what it was. It was ion the system.ini and my very knowledgeable computer teacher didn't know what it was, so i'm even more curious.
    Not all those who wander are lost.

    VCache is a read ahead file cache designed to speed up Windows file handling. Because Windows will by default assign all available ram to be used as a potential cache it is very important to tweak it. Many people say that there is no need to tweak VCACHE on Win98 or ME but this simply isn't true.
