I have one computer on a domain that will hang sometimes on 'Applying Personal Settings.' It's running Windows XP Svc Pack 3, and the server is 2003. I've read through many forums that I found on Google and one think I noticed was a common theme of this happening with computers that have been reimaged, or cloned. This computer was reimaged back in August. Unfortunately, no solutions were ever given. Has this been figured out? What should I look at?

I'd be inclined to suspect a damaged profile, as a wild guess.

I would create a new user profile...try to boot into it...and see if the problem results.

I see a lot of guesswork about this situation...but no definitive resolution/cause.

The profile suspicion is what makes sense to me.
