Windows Explorer very slow on network drives when listing AutoCAD drawings

Hi, we have this problem since upgrading to AutoCAD 2012:

 

Listing folders containing AutoCAD files on our local server is very, very slow, for example, if we hit the pagedown key, we have to wait something like 10 seconds to get a response...

 

Some indications:

happens on all our computers having AutoCAD 2012 installed

does not happen on local drives

happens wether the Autodesk Content Service is installed or not on the server

 

Thanks to share your ideas about the possible causes of that...here or here

 

 



right click on the desktop icon, select "enable/disable digital signature icons" then UNCHECK the radio button to Validate the digatal signature. The scrolling will fly...

Thanks, it was that, I knew the problem and the solution, but as it was specific to 2012, I thought this digital signature thing was not the cause of the problem, well it was...

No problem- just keep an eye on it. It seems to revert with no warning. Usually with any kind of updates or SP's. Glad to help.
