Windows 7: Icons in Explorer display slowly

Icons in Explorer display slowly

I have network drives mapped on my machine (Win 7 Pro 64bit) and any time I open Explorer while not connected to my companies domain, the icons take anywhere from 15-20 seconds to fully display.

As soon as I disconnect all the drives, the icons display immediately.

Any ideas?

Icons in menus and folders load/display slowly
I'm running a reasonably potent system with Win7 x64, and it seems kind of sluggish at loading & handling icons. For example, after a fresh reboot, if I open the Start menu (or whatever it's called in 7) and click on All Programs, I can hear the hard drive being accessed and the icons sort of fill...
