I have installed a fresh Win2k3 SBS (fully patched) and 3 fresh and fully patched XP Clients. The rest of the network is a DLink ADSL modem that runs into a Watchguard SOHO 6 firewall. Everything is connected via a 3com office connect switch with a gigabit link (to server). The Xp clients run CorelDraw 11 and the files are stored on a share on the network. For some reason the network appears to slow down by lunch time and then opening the corel files starts hanging and crashing the PC's. The server event veiwer is ok but the clients have errors such as 1030, 1054, 1002, 1001 (101), 5719. Any idea why the clients crash. Priniting was slow until i replaced the mapping with and ip address. Is it DNS?

There are a few things you can try:

Try disabling the Web Client service.  Go to start->run and type "services.msc" in the window that appears find the "WebClient" listing and double-click it.  Then change it's startup type to disabled.  Restart, and try again.

If that doesn't help, try opening the properties for your LAN connection, click the TCP/IP and click properties.  Then click the Advanced button.  In the Advanced TCP/IP settings, click the WINS tab.  Now change the NetBIOS setting to "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP".  Say ok, restart and try again.


If neither of those help, try disabling the Windows XP firewall:

Click Start, Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, select the Local Area connection,  Network Tasks, Change settings of this connection, Advanced tab, Internet Connection Firewall, uncheck the "Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet" check box.

If none of that works, check the following link for some more ideas:

Good luck!
