THere are two computers in a small office that share Quickbooks 2008.   They are both running Win XP Pro.    One computer is the main computer for Quickbooks while the other is a client for Quickbooks.   They were running fine until I put a new external drive for backup on the computer running as the main.  The main had a Maxxtor external drive but that ecame defective and a new external (Not a Maxtor) was put in it's place.   Now when the main computer is on but Quickbooks is not running and the user on the client tries to open Quickbooks it lags about 30-40 secs before it opens.  If the main computer has Quickbooks open then the lag time on the client is only about 15-20 secs per page.  This did not happen before.   The client opened Quickbooks very quickly.  Any ideas why this is happening?   Both computers have 2GB of RAM
