Mapped drives losing connectivity in Server 2008

I'm running to a problem with mapped drives on a Windows 2008 server.  If a user goes into the mapped share and deletes files it causes the mapped drive to lock up for all connected users.  I can remote into the server without a problem but no one can access the mapped shares until a reboot.  I'm running Server 2008 Standard with Symantec Client Security ver. 10.2.0.276.  DEP and network scanning are both off and I've added the mapped shares to the Symantec folder exclusions.  The users have "Full Control" of the mapped share.

SEP is your problem. Call Symantec to get the cleanwipe tool and remove SEP. SEP has been causing these issues for a while now and Symantec still hasn't fully fixed the issue. If you call MS they will ask you to remove SEP before they start troubleshooting the problem.

Also, if you right-click you Local Area Connection go to properties then select configure. Once you select configure click on the Advance tab then disable IP Checksum, TCP Checksum, IP Offload, and TCP Offload.

I also found this  referencing NAV 10.2.2

I'm going to upgrade first seeing how they indicate this should solve the issue I'm having.
