    Win 2003

    A member server at school takes some while before I am presented with the logon screen.

    The server stays on the 'Applying computer settings' for at least 2 hours before I am able to get to the login screen. And when I do manage to logon... I am presented with the 'applying computer settings' box again and it takes me a further 3-5 hours to get to the desktop.

    When I am logged in (or not), I'm not able to connect to this server remotely. Let alone ping it from another location. After 22 hours have passed, I am then able to ping it and remote on to it.

    Windows Firewall is turned off through GPO. I can't think of anything else to prevent it happening again. This problem has been going on for 2 weeks now.

    Anyone care to help?

    could be any number of things.

    virus/spyware
    network card/drivers
    network settings


    I'd suggest a reinstalling the os

    Sounds like incorrect network settings to me, maybe duplicate IP but even then i shouldnt think it would take that long

    have you tried another NIC in it? could be the network cards up the duff, have a look in event viewer and see what its trying to do

    restart

    I would disconect from network restart it even if you have to pull the power out
    ( i had one like that once)

    see if its any better not connected that rules out duplicate names/ ip

    if its still bad then as long as data is backed up a reinstall would be best course of action

    Have you checked the event logs and the available sizes on the root drive
