Server 2003 R2 slow file browsing

This started happening few weeks ago. We have a Server 2003 R2 that is our main DC and our file server. What is happening is file browsing to the shares on this server is very slow. I noticed when I RDP into the server as a user with domain admin rights the file browsing would instantly become fast! As soon as I log off it wold slow down again to a point where you have to wait 5-10 sec for each folder you browse.
I tested this by loging in with two different domain admins. When i login as a regular domain user it has not effect on speed.
Leaving admin logged into the console also has no effect.

Any ideas?

I just found out that there is a System error in the event viewer Source: EFS Event ID 6032 which stared about 3 weeks ago, roughly the same time as the slow issue above so i am thinking it might be related.

We have one user that encrypts the files and that is the company president. The encryption has been on for a long time but this is the 1st time we are getting errors about it. Each users documents is kept ina  users$ share on this server including the encrypted one. This issue is causing slow file browsing for any share on this server.

I transfered some virtual memory from drive to drive and restarted and now its running faster without me needing to RDP into the server. The EFS errors also seem to be stopped.
