Older Video Cards and Drivers are just incapable of handling the animations efficiently forcing Windows to use Software rendering, thats the only cause of the delay.
Your not really less-protected, the desktop dimming just prevents an aplication from faking the UAC dialog but it would first need to get onto your PC todo that and thats where Anti-Virus should be doing its job. Ive always disabled the desktop dimming since Vista since it gets in the way of my work allot, I haven't found it less secure
