We have upgraded (clean installs) some computers to XP Pro (SP1) connecting to a 4.0 domain (all SP 6a). Everything works well but slow browsing to network shares on servers and
workstations -- sometimes takes up to 30 seconds. This
only occurs when first connecting to a share. Then it
works well until the machine is restarted or isn't used
for awhile. We are not using DNS for name resolution but
are using WINS. We will be upgrading the servers to 2000 shortly but cannot at this time. Also, because of software requirements, we do not want to install DNS on the 4.0 domain. All TCP/IP tools I have tried work well
with no errors and name resolutions works fine. The WINS
database looks good. Below is nbtstat -r output after
connecting to a share:

NetBIOS Names Resolution and Registration Statistics
----------------------------------------------------

Resolved By Broadcast = 0
Resolved By Name Server = 9

Registered By Broadcast = 0
Registered By Name Server = 5

Any ideas on how to resolve the problem?

Thanks

You might want to try this. its from the NTFS.org tips&tweaks guide
Speeding up browsing of Microsoft networks
(provided by Perris, aka Dealer)

Go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\
RemoteComputer\NameSpace

Find a key named {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}.
Right click on it and delete it.
Restart
