    I am running a Win2k server with three Windows XP Pro workstations. One workstation used to login quickly. It all of a sudden started taking a long time to login, about 5 to 7 minutes. Once it logs in it is fine. No new programs or updates have been added. The 2nd workstation logs in quickly like it should, about 1 to 2 minutes. I just added the 3rd system yesterday which has a clean install of Windows XP Pro and it is also takes about 5 to 7 minutes to login. Any ideas would be helpful.

    check the dns settings of each client PC. do not set the dns to be automatic. make the Prefferred DNS address the address of your server...(192.168.0.1 if you run a closed LAN).

    I had the same problem now each PC logs on instantly...2-3 seconds.
