I have a similar problem at one of my clients.  The problem is mainly with
a piece of software called Proseries (by Intuit).  The software takes 3-5
minutes to open on two of the machines on the network.  one of them is
brand new.  The third machine has no problem at all.  It's not the oldest
either.  Go figure.  I'll replace the hub and see if that helps.

If you get a solution, please let me know.
