And if you check your task manager, under performance in Physical Memory (MB) your cached should be almost full while your free is almost 0 (usually around 10). Disabling superfetch helps free the cached area of your RAM and you will have less slowdown if you do various things on your computer (more free space on your RAM!).
Let me get this straight, you're a beautiful asian woman who knows about computers and plays CS:S on a regular enough basis to slate Steam as one of the programs you use "all the time"?

Will you marry me?

Thank you for starting this thread though, its got a lot of useful info in it.
