Thanks - figured it out (I hope). Looks like a not related problem that
just looked related at the time. We had an instance of VNC server
running on the server. When connected to the network, VNC would push
explorer up over 98% CPU - when disconnected from the network,
everything worked fine. Disabled VNC and all went back to normal.
Thanks for the help!

Use Enterprise Manager to look at the Current Activity of your SQL
Server. It should tell you any locks or running queries
on our SQL server that may be causing delays. Check for a calls
consolidation that may be taking a lot of resources.
