Been messing with this for a week and finally found the problem. Mcafee. I have reinstalled windows 4 times diff versions. Now WIn7 Home. File sharing to XP Home very fast. Install mcafee slows to crawl even when I turn off. Uninstall mcafee Fast again.. What gives
Same problem here. I'm running latest mcafee total protection 10 and
it's causing slow outbound file copies to my LAN.
Uninstall mcafee and problem goes away.
NOTE you have to uninstall, 'turning' off scan does nothing because the windows service is still running.
This problem has only recently started to occur - the last two weeks or so.
