I have bought a new pc with xp pro sp2 preinstalled every thing is networked i can map the drive open a windows and see the files but when i need to open a file the windows hangs or file shares are very slow and at times times out opening large files across the network.
xp surfs the web great
i have shut off Service Name WebClient on the xp machine little if any results
Are there other service I should shut down ?
my set up is a modem connected to a router on a static IP
its been suggested it get unix service ....see ttp://www.microsoft.com/windows/sfu/
I am not sure what to do I beileve the problem is with Xp machine being no other machine has a problem I am useing the xp pro as a standard work station
does any one have any ideas all other machines work fine their windows 98 and 2000....
