  1. Speed up Network Browsing in Windows 2000 & XP Here's a tip for speeding up Internet and LAN browsing on Windows 2000 and XP machines. When browsing network resources, Windows 2000/XP will try to find shared printers and scheduled tasks on the computer you try to connect to. This introduces a delay. To stop this behaviour do the following. Open regedit.exe from Start->Run Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace [note: line break inserted so line will fit] Delete the Sub-Key with (Default) string value set to "Printers" {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} Delete the Sub-Key with (Default) string value set to "Scheduled Tasks" {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} Note: You may experience a delay if that system has a printer shared.
