To speed up the browsing of your local LAN try this:

  1. Open the registry editor.

  2. Go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameSpace

  1. Export this key (in order to back it up, just in case) and then delete the key called

    {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} (Task Scheduler).

  2. Close the registry.

Be sure to check your ‘Binding Order’ in Network Connections > Advanced.

Note: This tip is featured on many websites, most of them claim it to actually improve your network speed, some say it doesn’t help at all. I’ll leave it up to you to decide.
