Disconnecting my computer from the domain controller causes the slow down

    If I disconnect my Windows 2003 computer from the network or I disconnect
    the domain controller, somehow windows and Internet explorer slow down when
    opening or doing some actions.
    For example, when I click the Internet Explorer icon it opens the main
    windows but hangs for 10 seconds (aprox.). This doesn't happens if the
    computer can reach the domain controller.

    Any ideas?

  2. If I disconnect my Windows 2003 computer from the network or I disconnect
    AD clients rely on DNS to "find" just about anything.

    They don't have access to a DNS server so what you see is expected.
