Connection very slow

WIN2K Server is running very slow.  I rebooted the server, but no improvement.
How do you check if the network connection is ok?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sorry qp just crashed completely, not sure what - anyway
Have you done the usual - check disk space, run chkdsk, dfrag, check for virus?
Hit ctrl-alt-del and then go into task manager. Look to see if there is a process which is using up all the cpu time. If it isnt an important process maybe you could uninstall it. Also run a program called hijackthis downloadable at and paste the result log from hijackthis in the text box on the website and then click analyse. This will tell you if you have any problems or nasty things running on your pc.
