Problem with username changing
Posted on 2005-04-28
I hope someone can help me with this little problem. When I boot my XP machine and logon to the domain using the correct password, everything works fine and I have immediate and fast access to all networked drives and other resources. There is no delay at all. When I click the Start Button and look at the username listed at the top, it lists my full name, "Daniel Attard".
After an hour or two, for some reason, I start to experience slowness with the network. Opening documents from networked shares takes 10 seconds instead of 2, and sometimes I cannot even access the networked drive at all. Basically, all networked activity is very slow. I've noticed that as soon as I start to experience this slowness, the username listed at the top of the Start Button menu no longer reads "Daniel Attard", but rather it reads "Daniel". If I reboot, everything goes back to normal, but only for an hour or two before it starts getting slow again.
I would appreciate if someone could help point me in the right direction as to how I might resolve this issue. Thank you.
