Speeding up access to network shares
Microsoft has identified this as a glitch in Windows 2000. Whenever a network share is accessed, Windows 2000 searches the remote computer for scheduled tasks, which takes up to 30 seconds and is completely unnecessary.
Download this program and run it to apply the fix. This program automatically deletes a registry entry that causes Windows to access the remote computer's scheduled tasks.
