I've added 2 network drives to my computer in recent months. network drive A: connects to my mother's PC. network drive B: connects to my laptop.
Now, for some reason, when I only had drive A:, my computer wouldnt lag when looking up my computer, even when her computer was off.
Now that I have added B: for my laptop, opening the "my computer" takes a Very long time, while it determins wether the laptop is connected.
Is there a registry fix, or any other way, to prevent windowsXP from looking up those network drives, unless an inquiry is sent To those drives? That's my understanding of the problem anyway, when the My Comptuer opens, it checks all the drives and the storage space etc. I figure if we could disable that lookup on the network drives, the problem would be solved.
What do you think, and can you help me? Thanks again!
