XP Slow

By Sprocket ·
I have several sites that have recently reported slow networks and slow logons. They were ok, but over the last month they seem to have suddenly slowed down.

-Each network is behind a hardware firewall.
-All PCs are XP Pro.
-Servers are 2003, but seems ok speed.
-PCs are running antivirus.

They are not running roaming profiles so logging on shouldnt be slow. They all seem to slow down while applying user profile.

Any ideas

Same Issue on 650 Network pcs

by smtech In reply to XP Slow

I've run into the same issue and it apears t be getting worse. Running chkdsk and defragging helps a little but users still complain. The computers are shared so there are multiple profiles on every pc. Cleaning all the profiles off at the same time desn't seem to help. There is only one IT person there are a time so trying to do every pc in a 24X7, 365 day site is impossible. Any advise is greatly appreciated. The pcs that run Win 2000 aren't having the issues, only the XP pcs. Thanks

First, try checking the switches. We have found that some ports on switches are running half. run them at full. Please let me know if this helps. We are still experiencing some slowness.

I have tried this

by jivs_ke In reply to XP Slow

I have the same problem on my network of about 150 PCs. I have discovered most of the hanging machines have my ISP servers set as DNS, so i removed the DNS and i am now monitoring the machines. I did this yesterday so i am yet to figure out if this is the problem.

slow xp

by czc61307659 In reply to XP Slow

Slow problem is a common event for Windows user.

"No matter how fast or shiny computers might be when they're new, they all seem to get slower over time." Microsoft claimed that on their technical forum(Windows 7 forum).

In fact, Windows built-in a lot of services and startup item start with system. So if you want a faster computer, you need to disable some of them first.

I saw an article before. It descripe how to make your windows faster.
