We had problem something like your, we had some windown 2000 PC in difference area logging on slow and running slow. We found that that were the first PCs were left on or first ones to turn on in the morning and they became the master browser for their segments. In registry do a search for "maintainserverlist" and set to "no" see if this solve your problem.

Hi

99.9% of slow logons are usually due to DNS settings being incorrectly configured. Check your local DNS settings and the settings on the server as well. Also make sure the DNS server is working properly and that the service itself is running.

Post back if you have any other comments

Good luck

Have seen this many times, running anti spy-ware cleared up an extremely slow login and program opening problem. Spybot S&D, AD-Aware, and Microsoft Beta work well (one at a time).

Would also suggest defragging several times (reboot after each defrag) while not connected to the network. This seems to optimize the program files better.

We had a same problem and that was because of the DNS. Enter the ip address of the DNS server on your clients that worked for us hope it works for you as well.
