Re: Cannot checkout or update on Vista

Stefan, thank you kindly.

The information at the Tom's Tricks site you linked to solved the problem.

I already had Remote Differential Compression(RDC) turned off. After
turning off TCP AutoTuning and Receive Side Scaling the problem was
solved.

I'm amazed that such arcane settings the average person doesn't know
or care about have defaults that hobble one's everyday work. It's a
bit disturbing.
