when i open windows explorer at work the damn thing freezes for a while

On my home computer everything is fine. My work computer is substantially faster. But frequently (not 100% of the time) when I open windows explorer at work the window is frozen for a while. It really breaks the flow of my concentration. Is there a way to fix this?
If it's an issue with looking for a network drive I'm fine with it just displaying the contents of my desktop or something.
