Logon delay after entering password

Specs: Windows XP
Guys, I believe most of you already heard and familiar with this issue.

1. A user in my company is using a brand new PC and everytime she login with her username and password, the screen will just delay at the "Applying Computer Settings" box for almost 5-10 minutes. This only happens if she login straight away as soon as the PC reaches the login screen.

2. If she waits for at least 2-3 minutes at the login screen and then login, there will be no delay.

3. I know this is related to network and yes my company is using a login script. Tried unplugging the network cable during startup, and there will be no delay.

4. The thing is, this issue didn't happen on almost all PCs, not even the oldest PCs there are here. So I'm wondering if there is any configuration I missed.

If you have any suggestion on what else I could try to solve this, please do help.
I'd be greatly appreciated it. Thanks in advance.

Can you post your loin script? Just redact your server addresses with something like \\myserver istead of your real IP or server name.

My guess would be that the GPO for the user group she belongs to is different from the other user groups.

Other things could be the LAN cable is dropping packets so try hooking her computer to a neighbors jack to confirm this.

Last, are all of your computers using the same image or are they individually setup. There may be an app that is causing the problem. I would image from a like computer to eliminate that.

Hi Ace, the computer was clean-installed and softwares installed per our company standard. So I can say there are no bloatwares.
All computers in the office are being setup the same and the softwares installed on all computers are also exactly the same.

What strange is, why this is only happening to that particular computer only, while everything setup and installed across the company are exactly the same.

I doubt it is because of the wall jack port speed on the switch?
