    Very Slow PC - Really Weird Problem!

    To cut a long story short, I had a PC which was running very slow, not installing new allocated packages, not rebuilding properly and so on. After much messing around swapping cables and network points to rule out infrastructure problems, I got logged in and was presented an error message about AD entries, so settled on rebuilding it with a new name, and it is now happy. Good.

    The hinky part is that the PC whose network point I borrowed to test the infrastructure is now doing the same thing.

    Any suggestions?!

    could it be something as simple as removing it from the domain, and then readding it ?

    What's Event viewer saying with the PC that now has the problem ?

    The two PCs are on the same switch, but otherwise all cabling is different; all other PCs on that switch are fine. Also, the second PC was fine until I plugged the first one into its socket.

    Could be that simple, but why would it happen in the way it has?

    Haven't checked Event Viewer yet - will get the PC back into my office and have a look...
