Domain Controllers responding slow to logon/logoff

Good morning!
We have two (2) domain controllers and four (4) other servers.  One of the domain controllers is also our Exchange Server.  We are running Windows Server 2003.

After restarting one of the DCs over the weekend (power off), it began to be very unresponsive to logons (it seems to get hung up at the "computer settings" phase of the logon process.  Now the other DC is behaving the same way.

We can access the other servers, although they are slow.

Also, Outlook on our terminal server cannot access Exchange.

Can anyone shed some light on what we need to do to fix this issue?  Is it policies issue?  Our would we restart Exchange too?

Thanks for your help.
