slow microsoft application (word, excel etc. and also explorer) startup when connected to LAN
Posted on 2005-04-13
I have LAN running on windows server 2003, it is a domain controller as well as data server. I have around 20 users who connets to it. It do not have any external connection (no wan, no internet).
On a client when i open "my computer" and right click on an icon it takes lots of time to respond. similarly when i open word or excel or related microsoft application it takes lot of time to load an application, and also when i try to open a document it takes lot of time.
When i looked at the task manager the processor was quite busy during this time.
Now when i disconnet a client from network by pulling out the cable, it starts functioning properly.
I dont know, may be i have changed some Group policy or some thing else.
earlier i had a server crash, and i had replace the hard disk of server and reinstalled all the OS and settings, may be something went wrong between that.
