    Dear All

    I have two clients now on a SBS Domain whereby they are incredibly slow
    with file opening on the server, even reading directories too.

    Last week it was just one and now another client, since this morning has the
    same problem.

    I notice when the client machine re-boots that a DOS CMD window comes up for
    about 30 seconds and it contains the following string:-

    NAMEOFSERVER//clients/setup.exe /s NAMEOFSERVER

    It¹s after this runs that everything starts to come to a grinding halt.

    Does anyone know what this is all about or know a fix or has come across it

    Can you please advise as it is driving us all crazy trying to carry out work
    on these machines......

    Cheers in advance

    I recommend you don't multi post to several newsgroups. It makes it hard for
    others reading the thread to see the answers. You are better off to stick to
    one newsgroup and wait. If you must post to more than one group then cross
    posting is a better way.

    Copied from my answer on

    I would check the affected computers thoroughly for malware and unauthorized
    programs. Usually when you see this behavior it's something on the client
    causing it. Try stopping or uninstalling any new programs on the clients. If
    you have My Documents redirected to the server some versions of iTunes cause
    this behavior. There are many other programs that cause similar problems.
