We have slowness when in windows explorer from a Windows 7 client and browsing the directories and files on a Windows 2012 standard edition server.  It is even slower if while in Microsoft Word or Excel you try to browse the file and open within the program.

This is happening to a lot of people and the server seems fine and nothing in event viewer points to a server problem.  From a Windows 8.1 client there is no slowness at all browsing the server.

Hate to do this, but suggest you do some research on the net or in this forum.  There are many, many articles and threads about this and to suggest some to you may only result in "already tried that" and so on.

Hi Larry,

I say respectfully that I have done searches on the net and here.   Perhaps I have used the wrong search terms, I don't know, but I have not found anything that seems to be a solution with the Windows 7 clients searching the network shares on our Windows 2012r1 server.

These are the things I have tried:

I looked at switches and switch ports that those clients are on and they are clean.
I have looked at the event log on the Server and it appears good.
I have currently pulled a Windows 7 user out of group policies to see if that makes a difference, and I am still waiting for the results of that.

I am not really sure what to try next as I have searched the net on this subject, and here as well.

Anyone have any things I can try?

Thank you :)
