This normally happens when you log on the first time using the client machine, Windows does take some time to create a new profile. If you have logged in with the client machine before it might be that the profile is corrupt, maybe backup the profile and recreate it. Also how many items do u have in your startup? Try disabling some items at startup( ->start ->run then type"msconfig")U will have to disable items one at a time to trace the problem, maybe try disabling your antivirus first. Hope this helps

This is due to the user having a HUGE profile... Normal profiles are 3-7 mb in size. This user probably has a nice 20-100mb profile...

Right click hus start button, goto explore.

Right click his profile folder and properties again... what is the size?

Make sure the user does note save documents or programs on his desktop or personal folder. They should be saved in a data folder that is being backed up on a server or in a seperate folder on the drive not located in the profile folder.

Also, right click internet explorer, goto properties. Click the settings tab and change amount of info to save from 700mb to 1mb.

The majority of user profile's sizes accumulates from internet explorer saved pages... in that users profile, there is a folder call temporary internet files... which may be located under local settings... there is a subfolder - Content.IE5 - delete all of the folders within that folder.

Reboot... should boot up really fast now

Good luck
