Delay on opening network files

    I have Microsoft Office 2007 Professional. Whenever I attempt to open a file
    on a network drive, the office program will hang (word/excel, etc), and down
    on the bottom I will see "Downloading <filename>" and the progress bar will
    not move. About 5 minutes later, the file will open, and I receive the
    following error:

    " cannot be accessed. The file may be corrupted, located on a server that is
    not responding, or read only.

    Sometimes the " is replaced with an *

    However, this ONLY occurs the first time I attempt to open a file in the
    morning. After this happens, I have no further issues opening anything else.

    I have experimented with keeping/removing my Anti Virus, and that has not
    helped. I have also checked permissions on the network folders and checked if
    the read only attribute is set, but everything looks normal.

    Thanks

    I too am having the same exact issue. Have you had any luck figuring this
    one out Yet?
