Scrolling on network drive is slowwww

I have 4 brand new XP PRo machines networked to a Win2000 domain controller server. The machines scream except for one annoying error. When I look at one specific network drive, scrolling temporarily freezes- then goes to where it should be when I click on the slider bars. This occurs each time I try to scroll the network drive. Scrolling local drives is not a problem.

The problem is also only on two of the machines- all 4 were equipped with same access rights and programs. I even switched the CPUs to make sure it wasn't in the wiring, and it's definitely on the box. I even tried running the systems after hours to make sure it's not network traffic.

It seems as if some process running locally is halting the network drive from scrolling correctly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, because I am at a loss. Thanks.

disconnect and then remap the drives...does that make a difference?

If not, disconnect the the two problem machines, then disconnect a working machine, then reconnect (remap) one of the non working machines

does it improve things? If so the issue may be an overtaxed network.

I wound up shutting down all clients and restarting the server. It seems to be working now. Thanks.
