odbc connection slow when not administrator in xp

odbc connection slow when not administrator in xp

i've experienced very slow connections using centura sqlbase 3.5 and gupta 8.1 odbc drivers when trying to connect to two different applications. the strange thing is, it only seems to happen when logged in as someone who isn't administrator and also only in windows XP. i narrowed down to the odbc connection because in the odbc datasource administrator (in control panel) i test the connection and when i type in the server and press tab, the database combo takes ages to work out the list of databases. this process is really quick when i'm administrator.

any help would be appreciated.
