Visual Studio 2010 build speed - kinda Windows 7 really

When I moved to a new project using Visual Studio 2010 the build time seemed very very slow. But it would seem the problem is more to do with Windows 7. We are using Subversion, VisualSVN, TortoiseSVN for RCS. I have been perplexed as to why we no longer get icons in Explorer and today I found the solution here.

Once I ran the spell:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled.
The world order was restored. VS2010 compiled 2 times faster, Explorer icons came out from hiding, and Explorer was happy (much much faster).

This fix may also address 'Access denied' errors for Win Vista/7 pc's which are joined to a domain while accessing files in quick succession from a network resource.
