Slow documents on SBS2008 network

We have a new SBS2008 server fully up to date. I have a few Win XP and Win 7 clients on the network. Users have Office 2007 installed. When A user doubleclicks a document on a network drive it takes a very long time to open. When the user opens MS office and then opens the file it takes half the time. The network is on a gigabit switch. PDF documents over the network is not affected. Copying files is very quick.
I have done a couple of things. Added a DNS record for the old SBS server to point ot the new server. Map drives via GP rather than a logon script. I have configured the AV not to scan network drives. The new SBS 2008 was a clean install and files moved with Robocopy
The problem is fine some days and worse on some. No patch or av scans run during that time.
Has anybody come across similar issues after migrating to SBS2008 ?
