PC slows after in Network Neighborhood

By stuchele ·
This is a 98 PC. It runs fine until the user browses in Network Neighborhood. The PC will slow to a crawl and the user is forced to reboot after which the PC runs fine. This is on a Novell 5.1 network. I have reinstalled the Novell client and done an in place setup both of which corrected the problem temporarily.

I had a similar problem where Distrubuted Print Services was installed but was not required.

Try removing the Distrubuted Print Services if you have it installed to see if that makes any difference.

The problem is was due to the way NDPS resolves printer queues and the such. Our routers were blocking the requests.

Mike, I did remove NDPS from the network neighborhood properties but it did not work.(I think there were still some registry entries for NDPS) I then removed the Novell client and did a custom install and this seemed to work. THANKS!!!
