    Default My Network Places very slow

    Hello members
    Lately I have a small problem when I want to open my network places. It is just very slow! Win XP PRO SP2
    Quite some time ago I had the same issue but was able to fix it but can not remember what I had done.
    Anyone of you that may came across this problem and able to tell me?
    Thanks

    Apart from your PC problem, you and PCWorld are in breach of your party's Electoral Finance Act. Suggest you read it and alter your signature.

    This is a PC forum not a political forum.

    Do you have any shortcuts in your 'My Network Places'

    Delete them and let us know if it improves again

    XP makes automatic shortcuts there every time you 'open a file via a UNC name'

    You can change that so it doesn't in the registry (back up first as always )

    Navigate to :

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pol icies\Explorer\NoRecentDocsNetHood

    and change the value to 1

    ---------------------------------------------

    And this one is to 'Speed up Network Browsing'

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace

    Find a key named {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

    Right click on it and delete it


    Reboot after doing any/both of these changes

    You haven't read the Act, either. You can make comments about political parties but you can't ask for votes.
