Extremely slow win2000 server domain logon

livegirllove asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-13
I have a network of 3 workstations and a win2000 server.  The logon is extremely slow.  Like 5 minutes minimum.  All the workstations are within 50 ft of the server with cat 5.  Once they are logged on the file transfer speed is normal, internet is normal, printing is normal.  Why is logon taking so long.  This is a domain. All WS are XP Pro.  This problem urgently needs to be fixed as it makes me look pretty stupid. ;)
Any Ideas??
