Windows 7: network discovery is VERY slow

31 Oct 2011   #1

Windows Seven Ultimate X-64
network discovery is VERY slow

When I opt for the network icon it can take 5-6 minutes for the map to populate with the connected pc's.

I thought it was my pc or network. Recently I resurrected an xp machine and it populates instantly. So I placed a copy of XP on my pc and it to populated instantly. I then placed a copy of won 7 on the 2nd pc [cleaned and formatted the drive] and it drags 8-9 minutes [slower pc].

So why is Win 7 taking so long to discover the network?
