Default Windows volume adjustment delay

Ok, here's the thing. This happens to everyone (I assume, it's happend on every XP system I've ever been on). They've "fixed" this in Vista and I've never encountered this problem on a linux box: When you go to adjust the volume (icon in the taskbar) especially when you single click --simply to adjust the master volume-- it takes a while to come up, ESPECIALLY if you're running more applications, like a game.

Anyone know a "fix" for this?

Other than wait for it to come up and make sure you are fully updated. No. I dont think this was ever addressed. As it was not found to be critical. Just a minor annoyance.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Comes up right away for me...

Like Mak said, there's not really anything you can do. Man up, and deal with it.
