View Full Version : "All Programs" slow in Start Menu

For the last several driver updates, I occassionally get a blank menu when I select "All Programs" from the Start menu. The words will come in after 10 seconds or so. Does anyone else get this? All my games run great!

I'm not having a problem with that but you could just try changing the delay value to see if it helps. Try changing all the MenuShowDelay keys in the registry to something like 100 or less instead of the default 400. I usually do that right after installing XP since I think their delay is a little too long. I usually change all of them but I don't think you have to do that. I do it b/c I can never remember which branch I need to change.

Also, you might want to try CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/) and a system drive/registry defragment. You can defrag the registry with Sysinternals PageDefrag (http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/PageDefrag.html). Both are excellent freeware utilities.
