I have noticed too, that antyvirus software can cause slowdown transfer 
from samba serwer. fer example Panda Atyvirus titanium 2005 - it scans 
everyting, even files from samba share, i'm screew up this software, 
because my samba network was slownd down.

Do You have any antyvirus software, that scan smb shares, when files are 
accessing ?
