PowerShell prefetch parser

Here is a PowerShell script to parse prefetch files. If ran without any parameters it parses all the files in c:\windows\prefetch. You can give it a directory or just one file if you want. The output of the script is a PowerShell object making it easy to output the result to a csv or xml file.

There are several explanations of the structure of a prefetch file so a new one will not be added here.

Note: The format of the Windows 10 prefetch file is completely different.
