Browser keeps crashing when I try to open up a folder with a large amount of pictures

I have each user set up with folder redirect and a roaming profile.  We have multiple folders that house pictures.  One particular user is able to open up certain folders with pictures and things work fine.  However, he runs into problems when the folder has too many pictures.

I took his account and logged onto other computers and had the same problem.  Also, other users that have the same set up do not have his problem.

Is there a setting somewhere that I should be aware of or something I should do?

Thanks in advance.

You know what, it might not be size.  It did it on an 82mb folder.

Another thing different with his login is that it was originally a local logon, but I used the, "File and Settings Transfer Wizard" when I switched him over.

shouldnt make too much of a difference - DNS pointing only internally?

I'm pointing DNS at the Domain Controller and the router.  Router has a built in DNS server too.

ah k, humour me and put only the DC as your DNS, flush your dns and try again

Figured it out.  The guy installed a copy of Adobe Photoshop on his computer.  I'm not sure if it is his copy or what.  I just uninstalled it and now things work fine.

I figured I would check to see if he's updated.  I listed all of the updates and then I noticed there was a viewer, but I wasn't able to download it.  Just uninstalled it.

BTW, how do you select which viewer to use by default?

Thanks for all the help.  You were able to help me figure out it wasn't a configuration problem.
