Unique issue for me. I have a 50 system business network on a SBS 2003 server. For 6 months everything was great, systems booted and started up very quickly. I keep a strict set of user rules in place for this company and can insure that users have not installed any new programs or altered the workstations in any way. I recently came back from a 2 week vacation to find my systems are taking about 5 minutes to start up, it stays on the screen "applying system settings" for the duration of the start-up. This is a little problematic and probably points to a larger issue at hand. Any ideas?
Server logs check out ok and dont point to anything conclusive.
All systems are 100% windows updated
All systems are 100% for AV updates and clean from any "known" infections
