Hi guys,

Have been with Win 7 since release and had a small niggle with shortcut icons being slow to appear. For example the shortcute in my start menu - More programs. Also I have a folder on my desktop with my game shortcuts in, the folder opens imediately with the game nems but the pictures are slow to appear. Mayb a second or two, is this a clow hard disk? My WEI shows my Hard disk as having a low rating.

Have you tried this tip>>

INCREASE ICON CACHE SPEED

THIS SHOULD SPEED UP ICONS ON DESKTOP WHEN STARTING COMPUTER.

[HKEY LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFT, MICROSOFT, WINDOWS, CURRENT VERSION, EXPLORER

I CREATED A NEW KEY (STRING VALUE) CALLED
MAXCACHEDICONS AND MODIFIED IT TO 8192
