I have a Dell E6420 running Windows XP SP3 and when this machine is on the network (connected to ethernet cable or wireless) some folders start to become extremely slow. Examples of these folders being My Computer, My Network places, My Documents, etc. When I am off the network, everything is fine. I have tried logging onto this account on multiple computers since this account is on active directory and the same thing happens. There is a log-in script that maps drives. Could this be the problem?

Does it happen on other accounts, or is it only one account that is affected?

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
