I have a network that had Windows 2000 clients in one state connecting to network shares across a wan link in another state. Some of the computers were recently upgraded to Windows XP. The XP machines are extremely slow accessing the files across the network. Since the Windows XP computers are going back into the same place as some of the Windows 2000 machines I know that it is not a network problem. What is the bottleneck on the XP machines. I have turned off automatically search for files and folders and removed scheduled tasks from the registry. What else should I be looking for. These computers have 2GB of RAM compared to 320MB on the Windows 2000 computers. I have also checked the dns and made sure that it was set up properly to go back to the main server.
No announcement yet.
Windows XP slower than Windows 2000
