I'll just throw this one out there. My girlfriend vpn's into work using Cisco Anyconnect. It works well enough. But when she's not using Anyconnect, not using the vpn, certain things on her laptop are excruciatingly slow. For example, switching between tabs in excel takes forever. She gets an 'Excel is not responding' message. Also, if she attempts to open Devices and Printers, that too takes forever. Eventually, both Excel and Devices and Printers with respond but it literally takes minutes which is ridiculous since her laptop is an i7 with 8GB ram.
Can you guys think of anything that might be causing this? Thanks!
