Sloooooow XP Pro on Win2K

By skye ·
The logon takes forever for our XP Pro systems on our Win2K server and opening the large Excel files just will not happen. Does the DNS issue apply to Win2K the same as it does for WinNT?

Try this. While the XP is slow, go to your task manager (Ctrl/Alt/Del) and look at the processes that are running. By scanning the CPU Time for all processes, you can see which one is hogging CPU time. Copy down the program name. Highlight it and end the process. Then see if your XP speeds up considerably. If so then you can go to google or enter the program name in the search and see what comes up. This has helped me with several PCs that showed the SLOOOOOOOW symptom.
