why does windows (from xp to 7) take so long to access other machines over network?
In detail: if I do Start -> run -> \machineinLocalNet\c$ oder \machineinLocalNet\share it always takes long to bring up the credentials dialog.
I ask this, because I never saw it any other way in every network I was woking in. Even if the machines are in the same active directory domain.
I assume there is some authentication process running, but there has to be something that can be done about it.
