Slow connection to share folder on new pc

i replaced an old workstation and copied over the folders that were being shared. after copying them over  to the new pc i shared the folder. I then mapped the other computers to this share.

When opent he share it takes a really long time to load the contect of the share and then when we open a word file, make changes to it and save it, it takes a really long time.

This is what we have in the environemnt:
"server"

optiplex3010 win 7 64-bit - \\computername\beth

This where a ll compiters are mapped to.

If not, try resetting the NIC on the computer
This was from another solution in Experts Exchange (I don't remember the actual link)

1: Make sure NIC drivers are up to date and that you only one active NIC.
2: On Nic from admin command run the following:
netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled
netsh int tcp set global congestion=none
netsh int tcp set global autotuning=disabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled
4: Remove all ghost network cards:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
.At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
 Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
start devmgmt.msc
Show hidden devices in menu
Uninstall all greyed out NIC cards.
5: In advanced NIC properties make sure your server NIC is first in line.
