  • Slow network browsing in Windows XP 1) Shortcuts in 'My Network Places' make network browsing very slow. If the 'My Network Places' folder contains a shortcut to a network share, then each refresh of the explorer window will attempt to read icon information from every file in the remote location, causing the system to slow to a crawl. Removing all shortcuts from 'My Network Places' will return the system response to normal. Every time you open a file via a UNC name, Windows XP will automatically add another shortcut to the 'My Network Places' folder – so the issue tends to get worse over time. You can prevent the automatic addition of shortcuts by setting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\ NoRecentDocsNetHood = 1
