Symptoms

When you attempt to view the computer share list on a Microsoft Windows 98-based computer from a Windows 2000-based computer, you may experience a delay of up to 30 seconds. This delay occurs only when you are browsing directly to the computer name. If you browse to a share name (for example, \\computer name\share name), there is no delay. This problem occurs when you attempt to view the shares by using either of the following methods:
  • Click Start, click Run, type \\computer name, and then click OK.
  • Right-click My Network Places on the desktop, click Search for Computers, type the computer name, and then click Search Now.

Cause

This problem can occur when your Windows 2000-based computer is checking to determine if scheduled tasks are enabled on the Windows 98-based computer.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
