SBS 2003  - sharepoint services slowing me down?

PCNNY asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a new client running SBS 2003.  Up until today, the server was acting only as a file storage server and all users on the network were not on the domain, but able to access the files on the server.  I have added one of the PCs to the domain and transferring data to and from the server is PAINFULLY slow.  Is this because sharepoint services is active on the server?  I have tried everything else from new cables to adding a GB switch, but nothing has improved.  the internet is workign fine and local speed ont he desktop is good.  This is only effecting speeds of data transfer between the PC and the server.

Any suggestions?
