very slow network browsing
Posted on 2004-08-04
browsing to a network share from my windows server 2003 installation is very slow using "My Network Places" -> "Entire Network" -> "Microsoft Windows Network".
I already tried several suggestions from other posts and google, but to no avail.
An overview of what I tried already:
- add a registry key so that browsed shares are not added to "My Network Places".
- deleted a registry entry so that windows is not searching for schedules on the remote pc('s)
- disabled "NetBios over TCP/IP" on my windows 2003 machine.
Apart from this I also tried stopping several services one by one.
Even in safe mode (with networking of course), I experience the network browsing problem.
I experienced the same problems before on several windows XP installations, but never found a solution.
While I was running windows 2000 on this same machine, I never experienced such problems.
Any suggestions please ?
