    The rpimary cause for slow logon issues are caused by DNS.

    Please check that the machine is using the correct DNS server.

      Does the issue affect one user or every user? Does that user have the same problem on other machines? While DNS is a likely culprit, the size of a users profile (and any problems with the profile) can affect logon speed.

      Is the machine in a domain? Group policies can also have an effect.

        USERENV(544.548 ) 13:51:47:879 LibMain: Process Name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe
        USERENV(29c.440 ) 13:52:01:922 LibMain: Process Name: C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework\FrameworkService.exe

        above logs states that windows update and Windows Management Instrumentation service are taking a bit long.

        I would suggest enabling netlogon logging.

        You can use procmon to identify the processes using maximum number of handles, threads.

        Check for userenv, lsasrv - event ids.
        Try MSConfig - disable 3rd party services and all startup items and then enabling them one by one.

          Adding the wkstn to a workgroup then rejoing the domain can often help repair this type of problem.

          Has this just started doing this?
          Is it just a new build?
          Like Wullie suggested have you check the dns settings?
          Was anything installed recently?
