Slow window refreshes

Hello, I just installed a new Windows 2008r2 server that is our file server.  This server hosts the user profiles and redirected folders.  The problem is that I keep getting Event 2012 in the System Event log.  Also, the Windows 7 systems are very slow with window refreshes.  For instance, If the user opens a network (or local) folder and deletes a file, that file name does not disappear.  Or if he copies a new file into the folder the new file does not appear until you press F5 and do a refresh.  The Win7 system is just really sluggish when it comes to doing anything on the network.  And since all the major folders are redirected to the server that makes everything really slow.  I am wondering if it has something to do with how Win7 talks to Server 2008r2.

Any ideas?

This could be due to various issues, however have you tried the following:

1. Update the network card drivers
2. Installed SP1 for Windows 7
3. Disable the Client for Microsoft Networks in properties of Local Area Connection
4. At a Command Prompt type the following, and press Enter:  sfc /scannow (to find and fix any known file issues)
5. In explorer do the following: Explorer -> Organize -> Folder and search options -> View, then click 'Reset Folders'

This was a known issue with the RTM release of Windows 7 under certain circumstances, see here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproui/thread/8afb8b65-900c-4f42-b1df-3c2394417b6e

However hopefully it's been fixed with the release of SP1

Problem was never really solved.  I removed the user from the Group Policy so that he no longer has redirected folders.  This solved his problem but I'm thinking it did not solve the underlying problem.  But unfortunately I am not able to pursue a real solution at this time.
