File Server repeatedly going "Offline" - need to reconnect and synchronize multiple times a day

I have something odd happening to several of our network users recently (not all). Several times a day I'll see the notice in the corner to reconnect to our file server because it is now working "offline". I'm not sure what would prompt this as none of the files it is trying to sync are inaccessible. Clicking OK works fine and it goes away for a couple hours, then kicks you off again. If I reboot my computer and log in, I will have to force myself to connect initially as well. What could be causing the file server to keep kicking us off like this?

I have seen Endpoint protection "network threat protection" cause issues like this.  if you have this installed remove that component.  

also if the server is running 2003 SP2 there are some network components built into SP2 that can cause issues. http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/archive/2007/04/24/common-networking-issues-after-applying-windows-server-2003-sp2-on-sbs.aspx

that link says SBS but it applies to standard and enterprise 2003 Sp2 as well.

SP2 isn't new to the server. The most recent things I have done are installing an internal sata>esata adapter (which was only a change in the BIOS to enable the sata) and uninstalled Sharepoint.
The server in question is actually running Windows Storage Server 2003.

It turns out it was on the client end I think. I had to turn off some MediaSense thing in the registry and then reboot. Now it is not having any problems. Weird...
