On lower resource PC's I edit these of fading, sliding, dragging intact, selection rectangle. There is no noticeable difference but it saves RAM and prevents hangs which should never happen in Win7 with adequate hardware or a perfect install.

To check for adequate hardware: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
To assure a perfect install, compare yours to this one: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
