problem with mapped drives... (Windows XP)
we have a user who has some mapped drives that are having problems. when you try to do something that connects to the network drives it times out. this doesn't happen when you first turn on the PC. after a little bit if you, for instance, go to attach an email on a network drive it takes at least 5 minutes to "reconnect" to the mapped drive. if you try to open the mapped drive from my computer or windows explorer you'll time out. i'm certain it's not the network because a user with the same type of computer is not having this problem. that's why i think it's an xp issue. any ideas???

Re: problem with mapped drives... (Windows XP)
In Windows Explorer check to make sure that under Tools | Folder Options | View 'Automatically search for network folders and printers" in un-checked. When this is checked it can lead to very long access times to network resources.
