Speeding Up Start Menu Button in Windows XP

Speeding up the Start Menu (Windows XP)
Most of us are experiencing delay (slow) opening the StartMenu when we click over it to open the All programs, and others features whichare attached to it. We can speed up this by tweaking the registry withoutaffecting to the operating system. This default speed can be adjusted with aquick Registry modification.
To do this, go click run – type regedit, the registry editor window will open, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl panelDesktop
HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl panelDesktopMenuShowDelay.
Double click MenuShowDelay to open, you’ll notice that thevalue is 400, now set it to 0 (zero), click OK and close the registry editor,now check the speed of the whether it has taken effect or not. The Start MenuSpeed should have been changed to full speed by now.
For better reference, I've included the graphical representation to perform this tweak step by step:
Try this yourself and enjoy the speed of the Start Menu in windows XPwithout spending a penny or installing additional applications. Good Luck.

If your programme is not working properly than try to Install neroOEM"Nero Express" and try this procedure From the Nero StartSmart

I want to burn some CDs), but I can't copy the files, I keep getting a message that windows is having a problem copying the file.


These 2 articles from Microsoft should give you all the info you need :)

Read this one first:

If the above does not help there is a more advanced article here:

In summary free up at-least 1gb of hard drive space and set your burner to a lower write speed, If this doesn't work it may just be that your burner is getting old and needs to be replaced.

Also the program "NERO Burning ROM" has an option to verify the data after it has been written, I recommend you get a copy of this and use it instead of the Windows XP burning because of this feature.

Hope this helps :)

Good Luck.
