My work computer connected through LAN is taking forever to login. It takes 10 minutes to login to the computer.

How can I debug this issue?


Turns out it was some services that were running in the background that was causing this problem.

Care to tell us what services you found that were causing problems? I'm having the same issue. – Jeremy Wiebe Oct 4 '10 at 15:18
It was the scanning services by the cooperate! Like virus scan and stuff! – user13997 Oct 6 '10 at 14:59

Many of the slow login issues caused by using an Internet domain name as your internal domain and not having the right DNS server specified on the client trying to authenticate in the domain.

@azamsharp: If this doesn't solve the problem, then it would help to have some details about your network architecture. – harrymc Nov 17 '09 at 16:06
