I am running Windows XP Pro on a laptop. When disconnected, all programs open quickly. When connected to a network, however, a simple text file takes upwards of 60 seconds to load!!!! Even right-clicking a file to display the properties windows experiences the same delay. I have no mapped network drives, but I do have network printers. Curiously, opening or right-clicking a file seems to generate significant network traffic, but I've scanned my computer for viruses/spyware and came up clean. I've exhausted my theories and will now exhaust my 125 points in this forum -- HELP!!!!
