Windows 7: Office 2007 very slow saving to network

Office 2007 very slow saving to network

I have recently set up a new network and 4 desktops for a client. The server is running Windows Server 2008 and the desktops are all running Windows 7 with Office 2007. When ever the client goes to save a Word or Excel document to a network share, the applications takes 20-30 seconds to save the file...even very small files. Opening files is quick and other applications (database) are performing well.

I have read in other forums about poor performance when there are mapped drives that are no longer active. This is not my case as this is a brand new environment. Also, notepad and word pad do not have the same issue, it seems to be the way Office is interacting with the network. Any thoughts?

Ich have the same issue with four completly new installed Notebooks (lenovo T510). I installed Lotus Notes, Office 2007 SP2 and updated the onboard tools (ThinkVantage...). So I think there ist nothing on the clients which is very unusual.

Older PCs on customersite are fine and they run on WinXp Prof x86 SP2/SP3 Office 2007 SP2 + updates.

Btw. My environment is matching the network of the threadstarter.

The hint with these add-ons didn't worked for me.

Any ideas?
