XP sp3, slow domain login (not DNS issue, not slow at "applying computer settings")?

    Hi all, new member here,
    I have a quick question with a long explanation.

    This is a Windows XP sp3 domain connected PC with one specific user, which all of a sudden takes 2.5mins to log in to the domain, Where it used to take just about 20 seconds. Other users on the same PC is all OK (20sec login)

    This is not the usual where it hangs at "applying computer settings" or "personal settings" it's after those two has passed that it just hangs for a couple of minutes.
    All i get is the mouse pointer (not even hourglass) and the desktop wallpaper for about 2-3 minutes. When it finally logs in everything is as quick as you would expect that spec of PC to be (1,6ghz Sempron, 1gb RAM, 40gb IDE-100 HDD)

    I've tried taking off all non necesary autostarting services. (even the antivirus just to test)
    I've taken it off the domain and re-adding it with new computer name.
    I've had it on static IP (with each of our 2 DNS as primary at separate times)
    I've tried adding that specific user to the domain admins group.
    None of these made any difference.

    Now i'm stumped, where do I go from here?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Never mind. Found it.
    I had Home folder connect to H: \\misspelled\
    plus i had it in a .bat for that user wich was spelled correctly.

    It's always the easy solutions :)
    Sorry to bother you all.
