The /prefetch:1 command.
Go to your media player shortcut/find it in the start bar - right click, properties, look at the end of the target line - /prefetch:1
MS add this command to their programs to speed up load time. You can add this to most apps, some return error messages. If they do, simply remove the /prefetch:1 command.
So right click your favourite apps and add it on to drastically speed up load times
