Hi, I have this lenovo computer connected to Domain controller and for some reason every morning it takes forever to login. It only does this one every morning and after the second or third reboot it starts working normally. Strange how this happens only once and than is fine. Im using windows xp on domain.

Is there any logging program I can use to troubleshoot this whats causing this slowness every morning. please help and any advice would help

i3 cpu with 4Gb of ram
250GB of HD

you can do it in hardway by troubleshooting your application
or do it by quick way by formatting your pc...

there are only 2 reason maybe your pc....or the domain controller

I would like to troubleshoot this issue and was wondering if there any logging program out there that I can use during boot so it can log everything.

I updated my NIC driver and nothing changed. I don't feel like formatting, or changing harddrive as this will be my last resort, but I would like to know whats causing this error.

please read and understand.
If is not your case, please check Event Viewer and write here exactly error or errors.
If you have Logon Script, delete this script and test again.

Hope useful.

So you have a slow logon

Is the DC in the same lan as your PC? If they're using roaming profiles and don't have them hosted on a file server then you could see a lot of slowness during login

Hi, you can check your network speed. Or if its okey, you can add a reverse lookup in your dns, and add your workstation.

See if there are any improvements.

Server Side:
cmd> dcdiag /q
If returns any error/problem - check/fix.

Client Side:
nslookup> set type=all
nslookup> gc._msdcs.your-domain

If this returns multiple ip addresses, it means it has multiple DC, and your computer is trying to connect one by one while its succeed.
This causes the delayment and slow login.
Other hand, the slow logins causes by DNS problem/errors - almost.

You can scan your computer for viruses, run a disk cleanup, and defragment your hard disk. Hopefully this will improve your PC performance.
