mapping a network drive takes forever [NBZ]

mapping a network drive takes a very good amount of time

Before installing CIS 5.X , mapping a network drive takes 3 sec " rough approxiamtion " but now with CIS installed it takes long time.----------------------------------------------------------

The bug/issue

  1. What you did: I tried mapping a network drive as I usually do
  2. What actually happened or you actually saw: it took more than the usual to do so.
  3. What you expected to happen or see: I expected the drive to be mapped in a very short time " as it used to be ".
  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened: I tried disabling all the components with no success at all
  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes here?: I’m using Network Drive Mapper to map the drive but I found out that it’s nothing but a shortcut to the core functionality which is embedded in the system
  6. Details (exact version) of any application involved with download link: Network Drive Mapper 1.0
  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen: try mapping a network drive " before " installing CIS and see how long it takes, now , repeat what you have done after installing CIS, it should take longer time to do so < and if you used the software it might hang.
  8. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons): uninstalling CIS seems to resolve the issue and it has nothing to do with the other program because as i said it’s just a shortcut to the core functionality

Thank you for your bug report in the required format.

Moved to verified.

Thank you


Could you please narrow down the problem as related to Firewall, Defense + or Sandbox? Do this by disabling them one by one and see if one of the steps fixes the problem.

When you disable D+ do that under Defense + Settings → General → now tick Deactivate Defense+ permanently (Requires a system restart)" → reboot when asked.

To disable Sandbox go to Defense + Settings → General → Execution Control Settings and disable “Treat unrecognized files as”.

tried everything above, but the problem persists
