However, could i kindly be directed to the directory "Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay" ?? Where to find this target?
Thanks for the help!

You might want to change the delay you notice when you click the Start menu.Go to the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay. The default value is 400. Set it to 0 to remove the delay completely, but if you do that it will be nearly impossible to move the mouse fast enough not to activate All Programs if you mouse over it en route to your final selection. Pick a number that suits your style, make the change, and then test it until you find a good compromise between speed and usability.
Place Windows Kernel into RAM---------
It’s a given that anything that runs in RAM will be faster than an item that has to access the hard drive and virtual memory. Rather than have the kernel that is the foundation of XP using the slower Paging Executive functions, use this hack to create and set the DisablePagingExecutive DWORD to a value of 1. Perform this hack only if the system has 256MB or more of installed RAM!
Edit the Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\DisablePagingExecutive to 1 to disable paging and have the kernel run in RAM (set the value to 0 to undo this hack). Exit the Registry and reboot.

follow the following:
look at your screen,
press the windows button then the "R" button(should bring up the run function)
in the window that pops up write "regedit" and press the "OK" button(brings up the registary)
press "Ctrl" then the "F" button(should bring up the find command function)
write: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay
press Find Next
Hope this helps
