    Slow app launch when connected to home network

    So I've discovered an interesting problem that I'm having with my computer. When I am at home, connected to my wireless network, it takes windows a very long time to launch apps. Everything from PDF reader to Excel/Word take at least 30 seconds to launch. If I turn off my wireless or disconnect, apps will load instantly.

    This appears to happen only on my home network. If I am at my office, connected to the network there, the apps load instantly. This wouldn't be as much of a problem, but I work from home most of the time and have to open many PDF's and misc files all day long.

    Any suggestions?

    I appear to have found the fix- when I'm connected to my home network, my wireless brother printer seems to do some sort of pre-check of all the files I open. I started disabling my background services one by one and testing by opening a file. Once I disabled the wireless Brother app, everything loaded instantly. I guess I'll just plug into the printer when I need it now.
