Network is slow for some and fast for others

My computer (a few others) retrieves information off the server quickly and others take a good 2-3 minutes. We go through all the same hardware. Same with printing.. I hit print and it's starts spooling instantly. Others you can walk out of the room go get a drink and come back it's either just printing or just stopped.

by default xp searches for scheduled tasks over a network, which makes it laggy...

merge this to make network browsing instant
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Are all the settings the same for the PCs that are connected to the network, software configuration etc? and have you tried isolating the slower networked computers and seeing if they have anything in common to each other, or comparing a faster computer to a slower one?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
