Workstation service slow startup

Dear All,
             I am facing a strange probelm with some of my clients , we are connected in AD environment , through AD we run the logon script to map network drivers.

the Logon script didnt run for some users at the intial start...it works after logoff and logon.

By investigating I found that the workstation service takes more time to start (It was showing starting) hence the Netlogon service takes much time and the logon script runs normally.

If i waited little on the CTRL+ALT+Delete screen (before entering username and password)...things run normally.

I dont know the reason behind the slow startup for the service and why for selected users only...how can i fix this issue?
