Saving from MS Apps to Network VERY SLOW in XP

    Recently, I've been having problems saving my VB files, or any office documents, to my network servers (2 NT4 boxes, one Win2k box).

    I can open files just fine, and with normal speed, in all applications.

    I can save documents used by Non-MS applications, with no problems (i.e. Photoshop saves my images fine, my audio files save fine)

    In MS Apps, saving to my local drive works perfectly fine, and with the expected "speed."

    But - any MS app opening a file from the network and then trying to exit the app, or to try to save the file back to the network, causes this problem. The application first goes "dead" to me - the menus are all unuseable, etc. After about 15-20 seconds, the application reports "Not Responding." If I let it just "continue", eventually (we're talking 2-4 minutes), the application returns, and the "save" was successful.

    This problem also happens when I archive my email from Outlook, to my archive file (also located on a network share).

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have XP, with all the "updates". MS OFfice 2000 (I've tried both with and without the SP). MS Visual Studio 6 with SP5.
