Vista Start Menu Lag Fix

Are you tired of having your Windows Vista start menu lag up whenever you try to navigate it? Did you know that a simple untick of a setting will completely resolve the problem?

Right click the start orb, and choose Properties, make sure your in the Start Menu tab.

With the top "Start Menu" option enabled, click the Customize... tab next to it.

Next, scroll down the list until you see the option "Highlight newly installed programs" and untick it, then click OK, and ok again to close the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window, and there you go, your start menu should be as speedy as when you first installed Vista. :)

Good tip. I don't see a reason why new programs need to be highlighted, since you know what you installed. I always turn it off.
