    When attempting to access anything (printer, file or directory) over my network (that is, attempting to acess something on a computer running windows 98 from a computer running windows xp) it is extremely slow to load. This also applies when trying to print on a network printer - the software crashes for about 2 minutes then prints.

    What is the problem? I am going to reformat soon anyway - will this help?

    This may be related to a problem that's been known for years with 2K and XP.

    Delete the following key from the Registry (after saving)

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameS
    pace\{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

    Eric Pircher sorted this - apparently Win2k spends ages looking for
    "scheduled tasks" on other computers when you browse them thru' Network Neighborhood
