This may not be an appropriate question for a Windows 2000 group, but here
it goes.
We have 4 machines in one of our departments in our Seattle store that are
experiencing computer slowdowns. At first I thought that it was network
issue replacing an older hub with a switch. Then they told me that all of
their applications including those local to their machine(like Word and
Excel) are slow. I then went up to the store and looked for viruses and
spyware cr@p, but nothing out of the ordinary. No rogue processes or other
various issues. All the machines are different with 1 being a Dell and 3
being custom built at different times. The only thing that I can see that is
common to all of the machines is MSN Instant messaging, XP Pro, Office XP or
2003 and Autodesk Software. They each have 256 - 512 MB of Ram and connect
to a Windows 2000 server for other various corporate applications. 
Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
