This is not for everyone but I have noticed when I select lots of folders and you get a blue highlighter it can start to slow down.

Lag on blue highlighter when selecting folders

To fix this:

right click my compter
then advanced
then performance settings
untick show translucent rectangle
then re-tick show translucent rectangle
then apply
Now when you highlight your folders in Windows XP there should be no more lag.
