    Start with this: How to enable verbose startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff status Messages in the Windows Server 2003 family

    That should identify what part of Group Policy processing is causing the delay. If you need to narrow it down further, you can enable debug logging like so: Fixing Group Policy problems by using log files: Group Policy

    Very likely your DNS setup is wrong.

    +1 for DNS
    Probably because it cannot resolve a DC somewhere. (Unless it is a DC)

    It's not an indication of anything being "wrong". It's perfectly normal for the "Applying computer settings" to take 5 minutes if you only have one DC, it is a race condition between AD/DNS/GP and will time out eventually.
