    Lag when opening programs

    --- revised 2/18/16 ---
    No further instances of lag (which can also stop macros from completing) since SUPERFETCH was disabled. However, some users report occasional lag despite this measure, and the underlying problem is extant. It appears to have nothing to do with hardware, keyboard drivers, SFC or services other than SF.


    After extensive testing and discussion with MS support, a manager pinned down the problem. It's a bug. Most folks don't use keyboard shortcuts so they're not likely to encounter it.

    The lag occurs when STORE or CALCULATOR are running as a background process. MS has allegedly submitted the issue to developers.

    Click a program shortcut. The app launches immediately. Use shortcut keys and it takes four seconds.
    e.g. - Click the Quicken shortcut: immediate launch. Use the keyboard keys specified for that SC <alt|ctrl|Q>: program opens in four seconds. Why?

    This did not occur in Windows 7, 8 or 8.1, to my recollection. If shortcuts are deleted and reconfigured, the keyboard accelerators may work as they should - until a reboot or two. Then it's back to lagging.

    START UP has relatively few programs. Both Program and Background settings for performance have been tested.
