    I have a question. How long does it take for you to load software like Internet Explorer and Outlook Express? On my 2.4GHz Dell at work when I click the E in the QuickStart it pops up immediately. On my new system at home, just a few weeks old now and not much software on it, it takes about 1 second before it pops up. This new system is running at 3GHz with dual 256MB Corsair PC3700 running at 466 1:1 with the system fsb. I know I'm being picky but why they delay in opening software?

    Obviously follow the XP tweak guides, but also specifically make sure Task Scheduler service is enabled, as that controls the Prefetch function of Windows which makes the loading up of common apps occur much more quickly.
