Outlook 2007 -  browsing network shares is very slow

We have around 15 PCs with Outlook 2007.  Some wireless, some not.  We do use roaming profiles.  None of them have any issues like I'm reporting.  We got a brand new PC.  I installed Office 2007 (fresh install).  The only issue is that when trying to attach a document from a new message within outlook, it takes a long time to browse network drives.  It does this across multiple users, and across multiple network adapters.  I even tried using different access points.  Browsing using Windows Explorer is just as speedy as ever.  All the other PCs have no issues, wireless and wired.  Any ideas to what could be causing this?  There are no networked drives that are old and unavailable.
