  1. I have Winxp

    1. When i right click my desktop it takes about 10 - 15 seconds for the menu to appear. It started doing this after i installed a video/graphic driver and now my graphic options are on that little menu. Is there anyway to take this off, and to make that menu come up faster? 15 seconds is annoying.:(

    will anyone help me, please?

    Depending on the type of driver, the basic theory would be to uninstall the drivers and install older ones (if you updated them) or to obtain your most recent drivers.

    Can you tell us what operating system and what video card you're using? That would help greatly in giving you an answer.

    OS:Windows Xp


    Video Graphics PCI Local Bus

    Video Memory 11Mb Shared Syetem Memory, Integrated Graphics; not upgradble.

    I only upgraded the driver because of this game i was trying to play, I dont even play it anymore.

    Sorry for the slow response.

    You can try removing the driver in add/remove programs.. this may not work.

    You can also look at upgrading your video by purchasing a new video card to put in a pci/agp slot that may be on your motherboard.

    You can always reinstall windows, too, sadly...

    Have you tried going to Display properties in the Control Panel? That should take you to the same spot.
