Setup is Netware 6.5SP6 on server, Client most up-to-date 4.91 SP3 with
most post SP3 patches. IPX protocol between client and server. Client
workstation running W2KSP4.

I use file search (called QuickFinder) under Wordperfect to file certain
text in files. Up until about a month or so ago, this was a very fast
search. Now, it crawls. I haven't tried Windows Search to see if it is
any faster. The only variable to change is the client upgrades to SP3
and post SP3 patches.

Any idea what might be causing the tremendous slowdown in QuickFinder?
Any adjustments I can make in the client to speed up the searching?
