Correct slow browsing of files on your network, running a home LAN using XP machines. (This worked very well on our computer network)
Open Network Connections.
Select at the top of window, Advanced - Advanced Settings. Select the Provider Order tab.
Change the Provider Order to:
1- Microsoft Windows Network (this was #2)
2- Web Client Network             (this was #3)
3- Microsoft Terminal Services (this was #1)
ALSO - XP and Win2K enable "LMHosts lookup" on your TCP/IP connections.
If there's no LAN Manager Host on your network (and there won't be on most small networks), XP and Win2K may slow to a crawl each time you launch an app as they look in vain for the Host that isn't there. Simply disabling the LMHosts Lookup solves the problem completely and allows apps to open at normal speed. (The Default is checked "Enable LMHosts lookup")
Here's how to disable LMHosts Lookup:
Open Network Connections.
Right-click the network connection you want to configure, and then click Properties.
On the General tab (for a local area connection) or the Networking tab (all other connections), click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.
Click Advanced, click the WINS tab.
Once there, UNcheck the "Enable LMHosts lookup."
