slow domain logon issue

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
We have many users having slow domain logon issues and I can't seem to pinpoint the problem.  The issue is hit or miss.  One day they'll logon normal/fast, and then another day it'll take anywhere from 1-5 minutes for their icons to come up.  I set user verbose logging on and pulled this log (attached).  I'm having trouble interpretting where it could be slowing down.

Network Info.
Windows Server 2003 SP2 Domain Controller providing DNS and DHCP as well.
Stations having the issue are Windows XP SP2 computers.  
We also have some laptops with Windows Vista and none of them have problems.

Possible Solutions Tried:
Disabling/Uninstalling certain startup programs.
Adjusting startup scripts and GPOs
Making sure wait for nework was enabled in AD.  Turned on Asyncronous load of scripts in AD
Forced Kerberos to use TCP instead of UDP in Windows (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244474)
Gave local administrative rights to the user.
I can't remember what else at the moment
If you need anymore information just ask.
Please help.
