Can I view login logs for when user logs in?

Hello all,

I am a desktop support agent for my work and I am tracking an issue that suddenly appeared on the network. We are seeing really long login times for users. The user will login and then the login screen will spin for 30min to an hour and then they will get in. I rebooted the machine and started in Safe Mode. The user got right in. I tried Safe Mode with Networking and the login delay returned.

Is there anyway that I can view the logs in Windows 7 to view what is taking so long?

Thank you.

Is this logging into local PC or domain login if it starts in safe mode use msconfig to disable all none ms from start

The machines are on a domain. I use the msconfig command in the Safe Mode.

There will be entries in event logs but not simple to find does it happen if you login locally or with admin account?

I am an admin account but the admin permissions are coming from the domain and not locally. I have seen excessive login times with my account on the same affected end machines.
