I have some older dell pc desktops that are taking a long time to load windows xp, sp3. To be specific, the long time is after the desktop appears, but before any icons or the taskbar populates it. Was looking for some troubleshooting steps. I have looked at msconfig, and run ccleaner to clean temporary files. There is a fairly new domain controller server, on our lan which they are connecting to. It is a dell poweredge t310. The problem with the slow login time, is NOT accross the board for all PCs on the lan. Thank you for your help!
