XP workstation was working fine until yesterday when it took about 15
minutes to logon to the network. Could not logon to Exchange Server as it
timed out. Access to some files on server is very slow but others as fast as

No apparent physical problem. Latest security patches were not applied
before problem first occurred but are applied now. Yesterday, it was
necessary to re-boot the server for another reason and the problem cleared.
However, it has come back today (from first logon).

Workstation has McAfeeasap client installed and no virus/trojan etc. has
been found.

All other workstations OK but there is a possibility that the same problem
occurred last week on one machine. This was cleared by loading latest
critical patches.

Any Ideas?
