Sudden excessive access time to DB2 via ODBC?

P: n/a
Windows XP Pro SP2
Excel 2003 SP2
IBM DB2 Personal Edition accessing a DB2 database on an AIX server via
the DB2 ODBC driver

I am accessing an external DB via MS Excel using Data-->Import External
Data -->New Database Query. Last week I connected quickly and
reliably. As of Monday morning, It now takes 7.5 minutes to connect to
the DB and all the while the hard disk is spinning constantly. Another
tool no longer connects at all with the following message, "[IBM][CLI
Driver] SQL1336N The remote host "dbt_rpts" was not found.". While
another component of the same tool connects fine. I can also connect
from the DB2 Control Center without a problem.

Has anyone experienced such a selective degradation in access time and
have an idea for a fix?

Thanks, Jim D.

I found one problem and that was that Norton Internet Security was
interfering with connecting. I also cleaned up my registry.
Curiously, MS Excel is still very slow while all other tools access the
data very quickly.

Can you be a bit more specific? I am also having excessive disk thrashing after a re-install of the IBM DB2 ODBC software as well as an install of IBM Websphere RAD 6. In addition I am also getting a Symantec message stating that "Auto-Protect is Disabled". There may be a relationship but I cannot be certain. Can you tell me what you did to clean up your registry?

Thanks,
