The article referenced by @TODDA-SPEOT-IS is a good start.

If roaming profile is used, check to see if it is very large. If possible, delete the profile (back it up first) and allow it to recreate.

Are there mapped drives or printers that are not available. Windows will look for these and that takes time. If possibl, delete any printers that no longer exist or file shares that no longer exist

Our solution was simple: we killed the profile and had the user login again. Not optimal and quite time consuming but did the job –  rkl Jan 10 '12 at 12:36
