Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check speed and duplex settings on network interface cards & switch ports. Mismatched speed or duplex can create performance problems like you describe. Also check the anti-virus configuration on the clients and servers.

    This sounds like a networking or virus issue. Check your network traffic with a packet sniffer, and run a virus scan on all of your machines.

    Defragmenting your systems regularly is one of the best ways to increase performance. Also, load up Process Explorer on some sample systems and see what's running. You'll be amazed at all the junk you can cut back on. Otherwise, backup and do a fresh re-install and your systems will be like new.
