we are having all programs freeze and not respond as soon as we go to "save In" tab or when we go to look for a file - we just click on the pull down tab to go to a file and it freezes. This is happening on 2 machines that we have on a small network. The machine freezes before even going to a network drive.???

Both machines have windows XP

More than likely the network drive cannot be found (has changed IP or something of the sort).

Try removing the mapped drives in windows explorer (disconnect map drive? I believe), and re-adding them.

ya tnes is right I think.  It's pretty common for save as/explorer to slow down horrible if resources are not available.  I've actually pushed out gpos in the past to disconnect dives on login, or logout to prevent such problems.
