Windows 7: I have a question about windows and its registry

I have a question about windows and its registry

So i did research and found a registry key called foregroundlocktimeout and the value was 200000 and when i changed the value to 0 i noticed the time for program to be displayed was quick so im wondering is there any more registry keys that delay or enable filters that can be turned off or disabled?
