Windows 7: Clicking on Shared Computer is very slow to view shared contents.

Clicking on Shared Computer is very slow to view shared contents.

I have three computers all Win 7 Home Premium and sharing (Homegroup). Side not I also had them sharing with out Homegroup and still same issue. Also This occurs regardless if PC3 is connected via wire or wireless. Additional notes AV was also disable to rule out. That is the only thing running on PC3 and nothing is running background wise on PC1 or PC2.

PC1 can easily view contents of Shared PC2 instantly.

PC2 can easily view contents of Shared PC1 instantly.

PC3 can easily view contents of Shared PC1 & PC2 instantly.

PC1 & PC2 can not view contents of Shared PC3 instantly; it takes approximately 35 seconds to view contents of main shared folder and same for each additional sub-folder. Also if copying a file initially it takes awhile before it starts and then stars off slow around 585KB/s copying over from PC1 or PC2 to PC3 before it jumps up to around 10MB/s+. However if I copy the same file from PC3 to PC1 or PC2 no speed issues what so ever. Speeds actually get well up into 70MB/s.

Any thoughts?

Minus setting all the Windows 7 machines (which are all less than a year old) to 40 or 56 encryption did not work. I will change the encryption though to see if that works, but that still does not explain or resolve the issue but provides a possible work around.

Thanks

I was hopping for a quick resolve on this! I do appreciate the assistance thus far.

Since my last post I did a wipe and reload with the latest image I have.

Issue resolved. So either it was a windows issue or a 3rd party component that may have modified a windows system setting/file/registry.
