We have a problem notebook on one of our networks. Its an Acer running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. We recently re-installed it to factory settings and updated to all the latest firmware. We tested it in our office, printing and transferring files over our network, both wirelessly and via LAN cable. However when we connected it back up to its original domain, access to the network shares is incredibly slow. Also even printing a test page to any of the network printers takes several minutes. In the printer queue it will show it spooling for a minute or two. It doesnt matter if its connected wirelessly or via lan, the symptoms are the same. All other computers on the domain can print and access network files with the speed you'd normally expect.
