Win 7 & SharePoint fix: webdav Explorer (windows explorer view's) slow performances issue

Since upgrading any client to Windows 7, SharePoint's Windows Explorer view got really really slow. Guess what, it has to do with IE 8's (maybe IE7 too) automatic proxy detection, not SharePoint.  You might experience this slowness connecting to any webdav server, including my iPhone's.

Here is the fix:
  1. In Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu, then click Internet Options.
  2. Select the Connections tab.
  3. Click the LAN Settings button.
  4. Uncheck the “Automatically detect settings” box.
  5. Click OK
