I'm running xp on an athlon 2000+ with 512mb ram. Yet lately, whenever I click start>all programs, the box that all the programs would be in pops up and the actual list of programs itself takes more than 5 seconds to appear (I would guess around 10 seconds). Then if I do it again the list is there right away. This only happens if I haven't selected all programs lately, or right after a reboot, but I am 100% sure this should not be happening. Does anyone know why my computer refuses to keep that list of programs accessible enough to display it in a timely manner? I don't remember this happening until a few weeks ago when I installed style xp and changed my visual style, but I know of so many people who do that and I haven't heard of this problem before. I have around 50-60 items that come up in all programs, but I used to have that many in my prehistoric laptop running ME, so that can't be the cause of my problem. Is there a tweak that might get around this problem if no one knows whats going on outright?? Thanks for any help!
