It is basically a type of system cache that caches all the programs you commonly use so that when the operating system boots, it loads all the libraries that are needed to correctly run the programs. That way when you actually open a program that is cached in the Prefetch, most of the libraries and other components are already opened and loaded to memory, allowing the program to start up more quickly.

"So man has sown the wind and reaped the world. Perhaps in the next few hours there will no remembrance of the past and no hope for the future that might have been." & _"All the works of man will be consumed in the great fire after which he was created." & _"And if there is a future for man, insensitive as he is, proud and defiant in his pursuit of power, let him resolve to live it lovingly, for he knows well how to do so." & _"Then he may say once more, 'Truly the light is sweet, and what a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to see the sun.'" - The Day the Earth Caught Fire
