    I just rebuilt some Windows 2000 Dell machines using the discs that came with the systems. There are applications that I need on the server. I have no problem browsing to the server and getting to the files although when I execute them to download them on the client workstations that I just rebuilt the hour glass appears for a brief second then goes away then the hour glass appears after about 10 seconds for another 2 seconds then goes away. From here it does nothing and at times will lock up the workstation. I have tried to access the files from other computers on the network and I am not running into the same problem I am having on these rebuilt systems. I have rebuilt many other 2000 Pro systems and never had this issue. Any help would be appreciated. If you need a screen shot of anything please let me know ie, system logs on server etc.....
    Thanks in advance to whoever thinks they can help
