Note: You make registry changes at your own risk! Make a back-up!

This tip is for Win 9x/ME and NT4/2000/XP. This Registry fix speeds up internet/remote browsing. This actually fixes a BUG in MS Windows that scan shared (remote) folders/files across the network for Scheduled Tasks, and can add a delay as long as 30 seconds.

Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
/Software
/Microsoft
/Windows
/CurrentVersion
/Explorer
/RemoteComputer
/NameSpace
Delete the branch, {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

This key instructs Windows to search for Scheduled Tasks on remote computers. Unless you use this feature it is safe to delete the key. This change takes effect immediately and doesn't require a reboot, so you can determine how much it speeds up the process.
