SP2 and SQL and Active Directory

I may have a compounded issue here.
1st issue, I have a Windows XP SP2 unit that appears to not be staying in
Active directory on Windows 2000 server. The log-in always takes very long
(like a new user would be logging in and creating a profile from scratch). I
can remove and reinstall it to Active directory and it will work ok until
reboot. At which time it gets very sluggish on log-in until i remove and
re-add it to AD again. When the unit is very sluggish and I try to shut down
i get a window that prompts "Syncronizing PC" and it stays for a
verrrrrrrrrry long time (30 - 45 min) before going away. What could be
Syncronizing on shutdown? No roming profiles nor logoff scripting.
2nd issue, I have a application that uses SQL (on the same server) using
port 9000. This also failed after installation of SP2.
3rd issue, I have uninstalled SP2 using the add/remove programs applet in
the control panel. The system is still behaving badly as in the 1 and 2
Ping stats to the server are good with no loss of packets and very low
Anyone experience this yet?
It only happens on this one machine. Others are having no trouble
connecting to the server nor logging in. Ran AdAware PE on this and Norton
Corprate AV both with latest data files.
It feels like the Windows 2000 Server isn't talking correctly to the Windows
XP Workstation if SP2 is installed to perform its normal security checks.
