Windows 7 runs real slow on shared drive

I just replaced a server (Application/file) in a building running Server 2012.  Some computers are on the domain and others are in a workgroup that accesses the shared drive files.  All of them access the shared drive files quickly except one computer.   It is running Windows 7 with 8 GB of RAM.   The computer runs fairly quickly except when it is accessing the shared drive.   Again, the others, including older XP computers, access the drive quicker even though some of those are on the domain and others are just in a workgroup.   I have run Malwarebytes and it came up clean.  Any ideas?

I have shut down Norton firewall and Auto-protect with no change.

When accessing the internet it is much quicker.

Open CMD as administrator & execute CHKDSK /f /i /r command, let it check when system restarts.

From Task manager --> Performance -->  resource monitor check the system for stats.

Also try SFC /scannow - if explorer.exe has some issues.

I Chkdsk, but no issues were reported.   Explorer.exe is running fine.

Ran SFC /scannow.   Completed without any violations.  Also I have noticed that when I open My Computer, it opens real slowly.   The "C" drive has 210 GB open out of 916 Gb, would that be slowing it down?

Thanks for suggestion.   I got it to work correctly by changing share path using IP instead of server name.
