    "My Computer" freezing in Windows XP

    Here's the situation, We planning to move onto our new managed wireless network (Aruba) for laptops. We have noticed, quite regualry but intermittantly, that when opening "My Computer" it will freeze for a random amount of time, say an average of 30 seconds, on a XP build running purely off the wireless. If it is wired, there isn't a problem. To add to the confusion the same doesn't happen on a Windows 7 build with the same set-up. We are thinking it is something to do with the mapped network drives, but are not sure. Off the top of your heads, can anyone advise?

    Trying to locally cache the network drive perhaps?

    Can you disconnect the network drives to see if you problem still exists?

    How are the network drives mapped, by using UNC or IP Address?

    I agree, sounds like network drives.

    We had an issue where a member of staff would be working in word for example, would then click on Save As... and the little explorer browser would take an age to load, turned out in the end that we had decommissioned an old app server and his laptop still had mappings to a share on that server.

    as soon as we disconnected the offending drive all was okay.
