I have two computers on a network and when we try to pen files, whether locally or over the network, it takes about a minute for he file to actually open, no matter what type of file it is. No error message, nothing. UNLESS we open the program (i.e. Word) first, and THEN open the file through the program, it opens fine. We have no virus scanners istalled to see if that would help, but it didn't and also performed a reg clean - well cleaned everything really and it's made no difference. Running XP. I'd GREATLY APPRECIATE any help.

Thank you!!

What kind of network is it, wireless or wired? What kind of router? Did it used to be faster and is now slow? Have you tried rebooting the machines?

I've tried defragging and emptying out the temp files and rebooting. I can't recall making any changes before this started happening. It's a wired network and we use Sonic Firewall - if that helps. I will try taking one off the network. Thank you for your help.
