Can all PREFETCH files be deleted?

I have CSRSS.EXE-12B63473.pf (33k) in my Windows\Prefetch directory. I read this is probably spyware or virus, plus all other versions in my system are only 6k. However, I noticed a .pf completely renamed/modified copy of virtually every Windows Service that actively runs existing in this folder, all of them with large file sizes. Finally, I read where some spyware like m.exe clones processes and "rides" WITHIN an otherwise legitimate Windows Service.
Therefore I have strong desire to axe everything in this folder. Can I? Thanks.
