Can I Audit Login Activities?

A computer at work is taking forever to login, before the start menu even appears. Is there a way to see what the computer is trying to do when its logging into Windows?

Most of the people I've asked said to move the PC to an OU that does not get group policy updates, but it is in an OU that doesn't receive GP updates.

There is nothing I can find on the PC that would be causing it to run 'slow' and it runs perfect once it actually gets to Windows.

How can I see what its doing at login?

    Getting excessive HD activity ? I assume it is on a network at work, does the sys administrator have any idea, or is that you ?
  2. I can see in the Event Log that I am getting some DCOM doesn't have sufficient privileges errors, and then the next item doesn't show up for 10 minutes, so something's getting hung up on the DCOM services, which I assume is what the system uses for updating.
