I found this in a few different places around the 'net - hopefully it's helpful:

Performance Increase Through My Computer

Easy enough tweak to usually find out about it on your own, but still, some of us still don't find it right away. So here it is:

  • Start > right-click on My Computer and select Properties.
  • Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  • See the "Performance" section? Click "Settings".
  • Disable the following:

    Fade or slide menus into view
    Fade or slide ToolTips into view
    Fade out menu items after clicking
    Show Shadows under menus
    Slide open combo boxes
    Slide taskbar buttons
    Use a background image for each folder type
    Use common tasks in folders

There, now Windows will still look nice and perform faster.
