How do I make windows launch a new instance of explorer.exe when I open My Computer? I know there is a setting that does this. I turned it on previously and the performance increase was noticeable.

It's under tools in any explorer window

Tools->Folder Options->View->Launch Folder Windows in new Process

Tools, Folder Options... then something about "Launch each folder in a separate process" or similar, in a long list of checkboxes.

Don't have Windows at hand, so I can't look it up in more detail :)

Yep. It's "open each folder in its own window" and it's only a list of two radio buttons :) –  Swati Sep 18 '08 at 4:15
