If you're like me, PSE4 is a V_e_r_y S_l_o_w program to open and fully load upon startup. (I only have 512MB of ram)... This tip does significantly speed up the start up times to both be ready to open a file and opening a file...

Disable the Detect Watermark plug-in (Digimarc). Photoshop loads quicker and your pictures will open faster. This tip is straight from Adobe's official support knowledge database in their Support Knowledgebase Document 318243. -- http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/318243.html

The Digimarc plug-in will no longer preload itself when you start Photoshop, and Photoshop will no longer prescan each image for a digital watermark before it opens it. Remember, this a "factory authorized" tip. And it really does significantly speed things up.

Thanks to http://www.lonestardigital.com/photoshop_quicktips.htm

Another speed tip is to use a video card with 128 Megabytes or more of Video Ram... Other tips are on the above Adobe web page...
