Give disabling SMB 2 a try.  I had issue with very slow opening of office files for 2007. Problem showed up only with Win 7 and 2008 server.  (XP machines were fine.)

From Windows 7.0 you can drop to a command line and issue the following commands (make sure you are an admin, or run CMD.exe as an admin)

    sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
    sc config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

Reboot machine.
