We have 3, new Lenovo 3000 laptops, each one of them takes at least 40secs to open word & excel docs from our network. OS is Vista sp1 - Office version 2003 R2. Software updates are all done. Most solutions point to either the printer, unused mapped network drives or the anti-virus. I've checked all these options and still we are having a problem. I've also tried copying files to the c:\ drive but this makes no difference. Its beginning to drive me insane. Any help would be very much appreciated.
