Windows XP hangs on Applying Your Personal Settings

I have a laptop which is not associated with a domain (it's on the default "WORKGROUP"). When I log in, the computer hangs on "Applying your personal settings" for a very long time. Do you have any idea what I can do to fix this?

"Have seen this in a couple of different cases.

System has a wireless and wired connection. Turning off wireless connection and assuring wired connection was properly configured resolved the issue. Never found satisfactory explanation but it worked.

Have you logged on as a different user? Same issue? If so, possibly a profile issue.

What happens if you log on in safe mode?"

"I have been in your same situation, eventually it recovers from the hang. Seems to be normal, depends much on the domain, and to a lesser extent on the laptop.

Does this happen with other domains?"
