My current assumption is that if I were able to reduce the amount of extended file information loaded I could significantly improve performance.

You can add or remove the columns that appear in a folder by right clicking the column header and checking and unchecking the options. There is also a “More…” option where you can select a wider array of column headers. Another option is to view the file share in something other than “Details” view just to see if that helps any. Have you considered the possibility of a bad network card? Use Performance Monitor to check. Select the “Network Interface” object, the proper network card instance and some counters to do with errors.
