First of all, I have a company issued dell d610. I have a problem when my wireless adapter is enabled. I have no problem getting online or visiting websites. But if for instance I have to find a file to email it, I can't click on a shortcut for my computer or windows explorer. It just hangs forever, sometimes for 30 minutes. So I would disable the wireless adapter and evrything speeds up to normal. It alsoo takes 30 minutes to shut down if don't disable the wireless adapter first. I sent my computer back to the office and our IT guys ran 6hrs of tests on it and said there was nothing wrong with it. I just noticed that if I go to programs and accessories to get windows explorer instead of the shortcut it works. Does the wireless adapter just hate my shortcuts? I'm thinking of deleting the few shortcuts that I have. I have spoke to no one who has ever had this problem. If someone has some insight to this, it would be great.

It could be a corrupt shortcut. If you delete them you can always create new ones if you want
