Logins to Network Slow

I am wondering if there is some kind of solution to my network logins being slow.  I log in to any computer on my network, even brand new machines, and it seems like it is taking 2 or 3 minutes to log in.  As far as I know I am not loading profiles from a server (that would definitely slow down the logins) but am baffled at how long it is taking to log in.  Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Are you seeing any events in your logs.  Do you have any login scripts running?  Does it happen to every machine on every login?

There are some good blogs out there that go through detailed steps.  A good list here:

I had the name of that blog but also look at the links I included in the comments.  I'd start with the DS team blog series.

Thanks

It's really hard to tell without know anything about your network.  Have you checked your DNS settings.  Maybe your primary DNS server is not functioning so it is using the secondary DNS server.  in this case, it would take longer since it tries to connect to the primary and then if it is down, then it goes to the secondary DNS.  Also, to expand on what Mike said, if you are using logon scripts and something in the script is incorrect, this would also slow the logon process, as it waits for the timeout period before continuing.
