This sounds similar to https://rt.central.org/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=130299

The afsd_init.log showed it took 3.5 minutes to do a WinVerifyTrust()

10/28/2011 10:19:56 AM: C:\Program Files\OpenAFS\Client\Program\afsd_service.exe version 1.7.100
10/28/2011 10:23:40 AM: Num of Process Modules: 85

Circumvention was to set in the registry:
  VerifyServiceSignature = 0

Never did figure out why the WinVerifyTrust would take so long on a few machines.
