Latest Novell Client on Windows 7 PCs fixes Office delays

At a client site with Windows 7 (both 32-bit & 64-bit) workstations running older Novell Client 2, Office 2007 & 2010 was experiencing delays in navigating the file/open dialog boxes. Sometimes the presentation of the folders and files would be quick, but frequently there was a 10 to 45 second delay at displaying the folders and their contents. This problem came on suddenly about early March 2015 (about three weeks ago for this post). I believe some Windows Update triggered the problem. It was affecting Windows 7 clients with a mix of Client 2 SP2 and Client 2 SP3.

I installed the Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR10a) on the affected PCs and the users report the problem has gone away the very next day.

The site is running a Classic Netware server 6.5.8.
