Win 7 log in to SBS 2011 Standard very slow

I am getting a very slow log-in for a user and this event:

The winlogon notification subscriber <GPclient> took 627 seconds to handle the notification event (CreateSession)

Event: 6006  Winlogon

Any ideas?

The DNS server is the network server.

There are 2 IDENTICAL machines on this network. Only one is doing this.
Any group policy preferences?

When you say identical, that is hardware, OS, and apps installed? Not that they are copies of the same image?

From an elevated command prompt at the problematic system logged in as the user:

gpresult /h c:\GPResult_PC1-UserName.html

Copy this file to shared storage.

Then, log onto the good machine with the same user ID and run the following command at an elevated command prompt:

gpresult /h c:\GPResult_PC2-UserName.html

Copy this file to shared storage.

Open IE twice then open each file in a separate IE instance via the shared storage.

Compare the two.

Are there any errors specific to that user?
Did the problem only happen on PC1 and not PC2 for that user?

Please post the IPconfig /all from both the server and the problem workstation?

Have you disabled IPv6 on SBS 2011? (note:  The answer to this should be no)
I would change the domain login to a workgroup and then reboot.

If the issues go away,I would then rejoin the domain using the connect wizard again and see if the what happens.
