I have a laptop within a Domain that takes a long time to finish the login - hangs at Applying Settings but sometimes hangs after the user hits enter after typing the password.

I've been over this document relatively thoroughly -


While it shouldn't be anyways, I have disabled the ability for that machine to be a Master Browser. Now, it tries about 10x or so at boot to start the Computer Browser Service and can't. This process, again causes the login to take quite some time.

Anyone have suggestions? XP Pro Laptop, which does have a wifi card so I have already explored most of the "dual-homed" options.

There are a few other desktops/laptops in the network, none of them are experiencing this issue.

While connected...

ipconfig /release *
ipconfig /flushdns
Disconnect all adapters
Make sure drivers are up-to-date

If this doesn't work you may want to try to disjoin the domain and try the above again.

Drivers are up-to-date, I can try the release/renew but the lease on this IP expired just yesterday and it has been going on for the better part of a week.

I did knock it off the domain and then brought it back on, which seemed to fix it while be it only momentarily, but it has come back.

I'm thinking I could disable the Computer Browser service entirely, but I really don't see a point in doing that because I would rather fix it than toss a band aid on it. I may look at fiddling with NETBIOS over TCP/IP settings next, not quite sure really and it's a bit of a chore since access to this laptop is rather limited since the person is out of the office a lot :(
