Slow Login Times after upgrading to AD

After upgrading to AD my users are noticing that the login times are taking *way* longer -- up to 10-13+ seconds. Any ideas out there???

Just something to look at..

Check the date of winmgmt.exe the service pack 3 copy has caused shutdown issues where it will pause 1 minute before shutdown and it does take me an extra 30 seconds to logon from boot or standby.

There is a TSB but I dont have it handy from MS. They recommend to replace it with a version of this file dated x/2000 I  believe - sorry not looking for points just to ask a question and saw this similar problem to what I had - no Active Directory installed but it was 2000 and has every patch from the MS autocheck.

Whwn u get in to AD eviroment 13 sec is blessing.Every time
u start ur computer and logon to ur domain,ur computer uses
DNS to locate a GC to apply the policies that u have enabled for it and the user.If u apply ur policies to computers only u can disable user policies to improve the
logon proccess or vice versa.Also logon performance is affected by the
number of levels at which group policy is applied.
