I have loads of RAM (1.5 Gb after today upgrading) and I was wondering if there is some way of speeding up the XP desktop icons as when I first boot-up Windows or insert a CD-R or DVD-RW with icons on, it seems to take a long time for them to be displayed as the proper icons i.e. they first of all show up as data icons and gradually one by one are displayed properly.
Is there some way of altering the register or some menu where I can store these icon images like in a cache? Any advice would be most welcome.
Do you really need that many! I have about 25 and I thought that was too many! You can of course delete the icons (which are only shortcuts to the relevant program). The programs will still be there and can run from start>all programs etc.
