Client Problem accessing Network Drive
Posted on 2006-06-29
I asked this question in the Windows XP section but have not received any comments so I thought I would try this section before I give up and reinstall Windows.
I have a Windows 2000 server with a mix of Windows 2000 and Windows XP clients. I have one XP machine that when logged into the our domane and I navigate to the Q drive (Network drive), I can see and navigate to all subfolders, but when I click on a file, my computer just hangs with an hourglass. Sometimes I can actually open a folder in word but when I try to resave or save as the system hangs. There is no problems when working with any local files.
I thought it might be a microsoft office issue so I uninstalled office 2003. Same problem with just Windows explorer. I reinstalled Office and same problem. I have no problems working with folders on the local computer, just network folders.
I have performed routine temp files cleaning, scanned for viruses and performed Windows updates.
