    Applying Personal Settings

    Locked

    I am having a problem with a few users when they log in. They sit there applying personal settings for about an hour. Any GPOs assigned to them are assigned to others that don’t have problems. Local profiles, so it shouldn’t be downloading large files for a desktop. Any ideas?

      Slow logon perforence can be caused by many things. I suggest you start by reading KB315418, KB375702, and KB 277543. These articles all address Logon Performance and may point you in the right direction. My personal experience is addressed in KB375702, your problem may be totally different.

      It still could be a profile issue – have you tried logging on to the same machine with a different user name to check this out? If the logon is fast with a different user ID, you might try deleting the old profile and letting the user log back on and create a new one to see if that helps. Also, of course, it could be a lot of other things, including a problem applying GPO settings. You could check out MS knowledgebase article 221833 on how to turn on verbose logging for group policies on theclient side. Hope this helps!

      Hey,

      As stated in a previous post there could be many things causing this. I will let you know what was happening when this happened to us.

      It was caused by a Lexmark printer driver/service. They system would just sit at the point you described for between 25-45 minutes.

      We removed as much as we could find that we felt was associated with the Lexmark driver, we had to contact Lexmark to finally get everything removed. I have the PDF they sent if you require it. Once everything was removed and SP3 reapplied the system booted normally.

      This may not help in your situation, but don?t rule out anything on the system.

      Thanx

      Here are a few things to look at.
      1. Are you using roaming profiles. If so, check the slow users’ profile to see how large they are. Also, have the slow user login on another machine, to see if it is slow there also. (The first login will be slow because the whole profile has to be created, but subsequent ones should be speedy.) If it is speedy, then the problem most likely lies in the machine or network.

      2. Have a user, that logs on fine, logon to the computer where the slow user logs on. If that profile loads up quickly then you can be reasonably certain that it is user related and not machine. The above slow first logon still applies.
