windows server 2008 taking long time to login

We have newly upgraded DEV servers from 3.5 to EXSi 4.1 and we are running VC 5.0

About around the time of our upgrade two Windows 2008 servers running 64 bit @ 1 vcpu and 2 gb of ram started acting up, the servers would be very slow to boot and take 45 minutes to login. (we use AD)

Now we have three servers with the exact same configuration on the same ESXi host, one of the servers works fine and login takes about 30 seconds.

I tried bumping up the memoy to 4 GB but still having the same issues with the other two.

Anyone come across this before?
