Coming from the "Starting All Over Again" department, Lockergnomie Chad Connolly believes he can belay EXPLORER.EXE's proverbial problems. Face it: when Windows first boots, your system is relatively snappy (assuming, of course, that you're not currently experiencing hardware or software contentions). When (not if) your session starts to slow to a crawl, don't reach for the reset button. Instead, do a three-finger salute (press CTRL+ALT+DEL), select Explorer, then press the 'End Task' button. The "Are you sure you want to exit windows?" dialog will pop up immediately; hit the ESC key to cancel, then wait a few more seconds. Soon, a box will pop up saying that "Explorer is not responding." Hit the 'End task' button and your Desktop will refresh. Windows may become more responsive at that point; you've done a pseudo reboot.
