Other solutions for "applying personal settings" hang?

The 2003 server R2 machine has been sitting at the "applying personal
settings" message for over an hour. Services are being provided so the
machine isn't completely dead, but I can't do anything at the terminal.

As far as I can tell there are two known problems that cause this:

1. A problem with the APC PowerChute software (doesn't apply in this case)
from a couple years back

2. DNS configuration that points to another nameserver. This also is not
the case as the machine is configured to point to itself and only itself for
DNS services, and the forward zones are configured correctly.

Are there any other possible solutions to this very annoying problem?
