Windows system file or printer file?

Windows98, PII450, 128 SDram...

I have in-house network printers, NEC SS-860 and 870.  When I click the property of one of the printer on one of my computers, it takes almost a minute for the property dialog to appear. I have two other computers having no problem but this computer does (it didn't have problem before. i don't recall what i did to this computer)
"In start/setting/printers, if I click File after highlighting a printer, I see the submenus after a long wait (a minute or so), during which my computer freezes." I can print normaly though.
I deleted all the files for the printers and installed only one of the printers. but the same problem.
Actually this computer has problem having access to other computer in in-house network where as Other computers don't: It takes a minute or so to access to other computers' files, while other computers easily access to this computer.

Can anyone help me with this?
Prompt reply will be much appreciated.

Are the printers referred to "network" printers rather than "local"?  If so, it sounds like a problem with the Networking card or networking protocols on this machine.  To solve the problem, reboot this problem machine in Safe mode an d uninstall all networking protocols and network adapters.  Then do a normal restart of Winidows and let it redetect the adaptors then install the appropriate networking protocols.  If you have any unique protocol settings (or IP addresses) for this machine make a note of them so that you can quickly get onto your network.

I followed as you said. This time I cannot connect to the Net: actually I log on but then it doesn't upload or download.
(Your remedy didn't cure my original problem: I uncheck the network.vxd file in start/accessories/sis info/config util./start up/.It works normally.)
I configured all the tcp/ip thing. But somehow it's like a dead net. My isp is all right because I can connect from other computer using the same dia number , id, password...

Any idea?

I'll give you my points. There was one instance that caused the same problem after I reinstalled all the protocols though.

I found I had two tcp/ips so I removed one. It works fine now.
