i have windows 2000 server and professional in my network.
out of which the server and some workstations are very slow.. i mean when i start the server it takes approx. 10 min to prompt for user name and password,then after providing uid and pwd it takes approx. 5-10 mins to display desktop and allow the user to work.
i have updated norton anti virus software.
i don't think it's a problem of virus bcz i regularly scan the server and workstations.
but when i try to check the system partition using drive->properties->tools->checknow procedure it gives error that direct access to drive can't possible.
so it neither allow me to check nor defragment the system partition(c:).
2-3 explorer.exe running
2-3 svchost.exe running
2 DLLHOST.exe running(out of which i able to delete one periodically and other one remains as it is)
i have already checked with fixweltch,Fixmimail tool from norton there are nothing in my system..
kindly suggest me how to improve the performance of my server and workstations.
