Windows XP network troubles

Hi everybody!
I have a major xp network trouble. I own a Pentium III 500Mhz with 256Mb RAM and I am connected to the internet throw a High Speed 100Mbps LAN. Every single time I try to start an application like, let's say, Corel 10, or Photoshop 6 or Origin, or Surfer or Grapher (these are programs to create plots), my computer searches not only the entire workgroup that I am in but every single computer in the building (in other workgroups) for shared folders. This is a very VERY time consuming procedure. For example if I start Corel 10 I have to wait at least 3-4 minutes till the program opens.
If I disable my Internet connections then everything is fine. But this is something I can not do of course. I have to use shared printers and shared folders.
Is anything I can do???
I thank anyone who can give me a hint in advance
Bye :confused:

Well, assuming these are legal copies and the software is not searching the network for a license to run, you can go here and follow the instructions to stop this behavior on the network.

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