Terminal Server 2012R2 - Slow Save As

Hi All,

We have a Terminal Server with Windows Server 2012R2.
On this Terminal Server we have the problem that saving a file in multiple programs takes over half a minute to show the "Save As" explorer view.

The following items have been tested / ruled out:
      - Not only Office, also in Adobe & Chrome
        - Not profile related, deleting the profile and logging in again resolves in the same problem
      - EAV exclusions (program files) don't solve anything as well
      - Disabling the EAV does not offer as solution
      - Creating a new AD user, same problem
      - Slow save as seems to come from loading the "This Computer" view
      - In the explorer itself, no problem
      - There are no network shares
      - no problems on other TS2012R2 servers

Any one an idea?
