Does browsing the network for shares take forever? There is a setting that disables checking for scheduled tasks when browsing the network. This can speed up things considerably if you’re on a larger network. This hack works on Windows 2000/2003/XP and Vista.

As with any registry edits, you might want to back it up before making any changes.

Perform the following steps:

Click Start > Run, type regedit and click OK.

Click the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
then Microsoft
then Windows
then CurrentVersion
then Explorer
then RemoteComputer
then NameSpace

Right-click on {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} and select Delete.

Click Yes to confirm deletion.

After you restart the computer, network browsing should be faster.
