    hi guys:

    i have a user who has some files on his laptop’s desktop; some word, some excel, nothing weird. when he’s in the office and on the network, these files open and save just fine. but, when he works from home, it takes 3-5 minutes to open theses same files and just as long to save, IF he’s connected to his home network. if he disconnects from his network, the files behave normally.

    again, i stress, these files reside on his local desktop. no syncing, no roaming, nothing like that. and, i checked his files and folders, and he’s way under the limit, like 7 folders and 459 files.

    this wxp sp3, all patches, sophos anti-virus.

    any ideas?
