Slow running systems

After 15 years a system that was running fast slowed down. It works at normal speed on a mac over wifi within the same office - but on a PC client using windows over 1 GB fixed line the user finds that going from one layout to another is very slow. It is a bit faster if there are few records. We have checked for firewalls, virus checkers and the latest version of FileMaker 15. But as I say the very same system on a mac performs without any wait time. If it the speed was slow on the Mac I might suspect complex fields on the layouts or something in the goto layout script (though I have also checked for both of these).

The client's IT crowd did work on the server just before this happened - but then if that was the issue then the Mac would run slow as well. My feeling is that it is either something on the network or on the client computer - but what to look for?

Does anyone have any hints at what we might look at next?

Many thanks - Richard
