I have a Dell laptop, joined to a domain (Windows 2003 server) that is extremely slow on start up.  It takes a long time at applying computer settings.

I've attached a usrenv log file - any suggestions would be most welcome!

I've had this problem many times, and there can be so many different causes...

But firstly, does the same problem occur when you log on locally, say using the local administrator account or something?

Thanks gentlemen - I'm not physically co-located with the offending laptop today but I will certainly take all your suggestions into account and get back to you.

Any update on this?

Sorry folks - the laptop owner skipped her appointment with me and has been out of town.  You've likely all made good suggestions if I could just get my hands on the machine again - in the interest of closing the question how about I just split the points?

Don't know for sure - still can't get my hands on the machine but I don't usually get bad advice here!
