When I move the mouse over a menu item, it seems to take a long time for the submenu to open."

You can reduce the menu response time with a Registry edit. If you choose to do this, be careful--if you damage the Registry, your system may not run properly.

If you decide to continue, click Start, Run, type


and press Enter. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop.
