Slow Network Performance on SBS 2011 I can’t believe we are having a re-run of two years ago, but if you have deployed SBS 2011, you need to run this hotfix if you are running antivirus software on your Small Business Server.

I’m glad I have low blood pressure normally, because it just raised a few notches when I found this out.
