    When I try and use the alt-tab function it takes a long time to show the programs running and to switch. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    you must have installed the power toys task switcher
    and as far as i am concerned its a memory and cpu hogger
    start>settings>control panel>add/remove programs>powertoys:Task Switcher
    remove it.

    Problem solved.

    I do not see that program on the add/remove list. I did install powertoys though, is there a place in powertoys to remove it?

    uninstall all your powertoys, then reinstall it, picking only the powertoys you want, by using "Custom" install...
