SBS 2008 R2 very slow booting up

I have a SBS 2008 R2 Server (Poweredge T410 w/ 12GB RAM) that all of a sudden today quit responding forcing a reboot. Upon reboot I noticed the system was incredibly slow and very unresponsive afterwards. Memory usage is at 48% and CPU utilization is nil. If you let the system set eventually it will quit responding and basically lock up. Any ideas on what to check. I ran HW diags w/o any issue and also checked the RAID controller and the virtual disks..they check out OK. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I ended up deleting the DNS server and recreating it. It seemed to fix the issue.

    After recreating DNS on the server the problem resolved itself.
