    Question Slow dialog boxes!

    When i want to open or save a drawing, it takes ages for dialog box to appear.
    I have AutoCAD 2004 LT on Win XP Pro - the problem occurred before i installed SP2.
    How to get it back to normal? Any ideas what causes it?

    Thank you!

    (Sorry - i was not very good searching the forum.)
    My solution is- i cleared all locations, that refer to network locations, from "look in:".
    And now it works just fine.
    (And all the shortcuts, i removed, i put on desktop (its only one click away from "look in:"))

    just wanted to confirm that the "look-in" solution worked for me.
    After re-mapping a network drive, the "open" and "save" dialogs opened with a huge delay.
    I assumed it would be related to a path setting somewhere, but I thought I had them all cleaned up already. Since I never use that "look in" feature, I didn't check there...
    So this hint was very valuable!
