Files Sharing slow in Windows XP workgroup
Posted on 2004-10-04
I have a client who has a small workgroup of 6 computers (all XP) of which one system acts as a file server. The file server machine is a new one replaced a week ago. It has a 110GB HD and 1GB RAM and a 1000Mb NIC.
The client computers experience a delay of 2 minutes in opening a file from the server machine. Have tried most of the solutions found on the Internet and nothing helps. The following are a few that I have tried:
1. AV disabled for the shared resource on the Server machine and all client machines.
2. Simple File sharing disabled on File Server and all computers.
3. Add network shortcuts disabled.
4. Disabled firewall on all computers.
Any help would be much appreciated!!!
