OK – This solution might not work for all, but after many tests, it did for me with Vista and Norton 360

The solution: Remove Norton 360

The problem: Opening files shared from a PC running norton 360 on Vista Home (and possibly other versions) results in a long delay of up to 60 seconds when opening the files in Office applications on other Vista Home series PCs. Interestingly, Vista Ultimate (and possibly business, not tested) were not affected by the problem.

Other tried solutions that made no difference:
– upgrading to SP1 of Vista
– Turning off differential copying in Windows Features control panel
– Turning off CA Antivirus on a client PC
– Disabling Norton 360 as much as possible.

As usual, the warning is to never by a Norton product.

Cheers, Mike.
