Hi folks,

I need help. We have a peer to peer network here in our company, for some reason, my boss computer have issue when he open My Network Place and it take like 30 sec or more to be able to display other computers or shared document on the network. My computer or other don't have that issue. We have about 18 PC on the network. Anyone have a clue why it take long time to be able to see other computer/share on the network place? I check all the setting, firewall, antiviruses, etc. but couldn't find the problem. I guess it laying somewhere in the operating system.

Thank in advance,

Hi

If you are comfortable working in the registry you can try looking at this page.

But first make sure you create a restore point and export the registry keys before changing them just in case you have to change them back.

Is it just the browsing that takes long? or does working on the network also take longer than the other workstations?

Hope this works.

Hi AlbertMC2,

I will take a look at the page you refer to. Thanks for that info.

Whenever the boss click on My Network Place, it take a long
time to display all the computer shared folder and it only
seem to happen on his computer, other PC seem to be ok.
It happen a few month ago, I did not have much time
to check on it that is why it take long for me to tackle
it now. I am think about reformat the drive and reinstall
winxp again just to get rid of that issue. Oh he also mention
that he did not install anything except windows update itself.
Maybe that is the issue.

Thanks,
