log onto the pc as a local or domain admin.
rename the users profile to user.old or simular
log off and get user to log back on.

Event viewer say anything?
 Maybe you have mapped drive or printers which have incorecct login or password. Then Windows try to map drive or printer, encounters a problem and wait something about 60 second and try again.

I have reviewed all the application and system logs but didn't found any valid logs which is causing this issue.
Also checked there is no any mapped drive or printer are available.

ok, so... Try to disconnect computer from domain, then delete your profile (advance system settings/user profiles) also delete user from registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList). Then reboot your computer, and connect to domain. Maybe it will help you.
