"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.
Sometimes Anti Virus installations can become buggy and since they usually scan just about everything you open, you could experience high degree of latency especially traversing folders. Uninstall the AV from one client and see if that helps.
I would start by comparing the two user accounts in Active Directory:
Do user A and B have the same logon scripts? If not, compare the two logon scripts to see what's different.
Do user A and B have the same "Member of" membership to security groups? If not, find another person who does, and see if this problem exists for that user as well.
Do user A and B get the same Group Policy Objects applied at logon? To check this you can use Group Policy Modeling Wizard to see which GPOs apply to each person.
If user A and B have the same permissions, group membership, group policy objects applied, then let's look at the roaming profiles. You might even first test this by renaming the C:\User\UserA\ directory on a local system just so Windows logs them on with a temporary profile. THe benefit to this would be that if their network shares are NOT slow when using a temporary local profile, then the issue is definitely within the roaming profile folder or preferences itself.
If the problem does persist even with a temporary logon profile, then it's still having to do with permissions in some way.
If you cannot find any difference in setup, permissions, or group membership, then I suggest removing/renaming and re-creating a new user profile and roaming directories for the affected user.
