Get rid. It's an utter waste of time.

If you're running XP go to:

Start > Run > type services.msc > Enter.
Scroll down to 'Indexing', right click it and change it from Automatic to either Disabled or, if you want to play it safe, Manual.

Then when you're happy with it set at Manual you can go back and change it to Disabled.

End of.

If you are running Vista you'll have to wait for a more adventurous peer to come along as to tell you how to get rid of Super Prefetch since I am the antithesis of everything Vista-related. :)
