    I have a tendancy to remove all the main shortcuts out of the folders in the start menu and place them all in the root of the start menu. Does this slow down start up, or how long it takes to launch the start menu?

    WHY? Your saying you take all of the shortcuts out of the "All Programs" folder and place them in the "Start Menu" folder?
    My system:

    Win XP PRO
    Athlon XP 2600 ( OC - 2.340)
    Asus A7V8X
    GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 256meg (OC - 500/900)
    1024 Kingston PC 2700 (OC - 360)
    2 - 40 gig WD 7200rpm (RAID 0)
    120 gig USB 2.0 Drive
    19" Viewsonic A90f+ Ultrabrite
    Cable Internet

    No no, I guess I should have been more specific. I mean take the main shortcut out of the shortcuts folder, and stick it in the programs folder. So when I click start, I go to programs, then there is a bunch of shortcuts in there. I thought that I heard somewhere that it slows down the login sequence. I couldnt find much of a reason why it would, but I figured Id ask.

    Unless you put them in Start > Programs > Startup, it wouldn't really make a difference. Having those extra shortcuts in the start menu adds a few registry entires, but those won't slow boot-up time by even a millesecond on almsot any system.
