"Applying personal settings..." and slow logon

Im running SBS 2003 SP1 with another 2003 R2 Enterprise SP2 virtual image as the backup DC.  I'm using ClarkConnect as the firewall/router/DNS set to, SBS is pointing to it for DNS.  For some reason login became incredibly slow with about 3-4 minute wait.  I've tried login using other accounts either locally or remotely, same thing.

Other member servers login just fine, just the SBS server.  Please help.

I'm a bit concerned that your router is providing DNS. Normally you have the DC or another windows server providing DNS since the sever and clients must locate a DNS server which is authorative for the domain. This is because the DC must register SRV records in DNS to indentify services and the clients must point ro the authorative server to use these to locate the domain controller.

Normally therefore the DC will host Active Directory Integrated DNS, all machines on the domain, including will point to a domain controller for their DNS (and the DC will point to itself), to ensure that internal name resolution occurs. The DNS server will then have forwarders set (on the properties tab) to point to external DNS sources for external name resolution.
