Speed Up Network Browsing (TTID #108)

Author: Travis   Views: 43,317 /  Created: June 11, 2002
Content displaying is sluggish when browsing the network with Explorer. This is most noticeable when going from Windows 2000/XP to Windows 9X/ME Machine.

When browsing network resources, Windows 2000/XP will try to find shared printers and scheduled tasks on the computer you try to connect to.

  • Step 1: Click Start > Run
  • Step 2: Type in regedit in the prompt
  • Step 3: Delete the Sub-Key with (Default) string value set to "Printers"
  • Step 4: Delete the Sub-Key with (Default) string value set to "Scheduled Tasks"
Note: You may experience a delay if that system has a printer shared.

Registry Editor
Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameSpace]
Sub Key: {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}
Sub Key: {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}
