One of our companies Windows 2000 workstation is slow compared to other like workstations. The workstation in question is a Dell Dimension 4100, 1.0Ghz, 512Mb Ram. The main software package used on this workstation is Office 2000 Professional. Windows loads slowly and navigation from the desktop to files or programs is slow as well. The desktop is relatively clean. One thing that I have noticed about this workstation is that the user has nested folders maybe 8 or 9 folders deep in some of her directories. I know this because she has had problems burning CD's to her Roxio CD burner trying to burn files from some of the folders that are buried in some of the deeper folders. Does this tree structure load into Ram? Is it possible that this deep nesting is slowing down this workstation? Do you have any idea what might be causing this workstation to be slower. The workstation, I believe is free of spyware and viruses. We run Symantec Corporate Edition 9.0 Antivirus software, Microsoft Beta Anti-Spyware, Ad-ware and Spybot Anti-Spyware all are automated or religious updated. So I don't believe viruses or spyware are a problem. Thank you!
