Here's a trick I've found fixes problems like this on my network.
On your windows server, open up your network card configuration, and change
it from auto-negotiation of link speed and duplex to 100MBit/Full Duplex.
(If that's what your switch supports)

I know you've done file copies, and got great speed, but I did too! You've
got nothing to loose!
