We're having performance problems with some workstations (XP workstations).

The problem we diagnosed occurs when a user right clicks on a UNC link (on his 
desktop). The popup window only appears after 80 seconds. On another XP 
workstation (in the same room, same switch ...), it works OK.

We have dumped the network traffic from both these workstations, and the 
result is that from the buggy workstation, the amount of traffic is around 
30Mb,  with the same QUERY_FILE_INFO sent thousands of times (subcommand 

This problem is having a big impact on our performance. Is it a known issue ? 
(We can provide the dumps)

 Thanks a lot.
