Have you noticed that opening excel files across the network is slower
than molasses now?

You can thank KB2541025 and KB2502786 for that. The first can be
removed by checking updates and finding it in add/remove programs. The
second is the office file validator.

Anyone doing a wireshark trace will see that it's 1K packets to open a
small file without those, and over 65K packets to open it with them.

Great job there MS


Hope this saves someone head banging. I spent all week looking at is as
a client32/Netware issue.
