Whenever I close a window, the whole desktop refreshes, including all the icons. Sometimes this can take up to one minute whilst I wait for the icons to go back to their original state. As you can guess this is very frustrating, Any ideas please, System Win XP Home (Full Install), 768mb PC133 SDRAM, ATI Radeon 9800XT 256 DDR Ram, CTX m730v Screen.
try clicking start/control panel/system/advanced/performance/settings/visual effects and choose adjust for best performance.this will turn off all the graphical effects and make xp look like win 2k.it should be a bit faster.
or try unticking some boxes here to use custom settings.
