Why is Office 2010 slow to open network files?

Office 2010 takes a very long time to open documents on a shared networked drive.  The share is on a Windows 2008 server that is at a remote location.  Both sites are connected via SonicWall VPN's, and both have T1 lines.  We are not having the issue with opening files from Office 2003.  Any help is appreciated.  By the way, the computers that are opening the files are all running Windows 7 Pro.

Thank you,

I've seen this when you have Office 2010 and IE8.  Try changing the following Internet Explorer setting:

Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Local Intranet -> Sites ... Uncheck "automatically detect intranet network"

michko,

I tried this fix and it didn't help.  However, I did find the solution.  Our Anti-Virus software was set to scan network drives on the client machines.  Once we disabled that, the documents opened great.

Thanks
