Currently, I have a end user who has zipped files (Around 135-200MB in size) that they extract and it takes about 30-45 mins for the files to extract. This seems too long for a Windows 7 laptop. This laptop is 64-bit and has 4GB of RAM and is on the domain, the ethernet connection goes from the wall jack to the RJ45 port to Toshiba Docking station. Any suggestions would be great on how to resolve this latency. Thank you

If he is unzipping off of a server, he might try moving them to his desktop. It also depends on what compression ratio they are zipped at. If the file is highly compressed, it will take more time for it to extract all the data.

you can copy zipped file to local machine and then try to unzip and find any improvement then the error could be possibly due to poor net connections

Put the computer in clean boot and then try to extract files

Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.
