Newly created accounts run VERY slowly

Posted on 2007-09-28

I have inhereted a server. The main admin account is very quick and works well.
As myself and another developer need simultaneous access to the server (using terminal services) I created 2 new accounts and asigned them both local admin rights.

THE PROBLEM is that these new accounts (even when run as the only logged in user) are incredibly slow. SQL Server Management Console is taking nearly 30 secs to load and Visual studio takes ages to do anything. If log in using the old, original account it moves like lightening.

Does anyone have any suggestions please?

    In AD right click on user accounts and do a copy to crate  a new user.  Then take away unnessary persmissions from that user... login with that user and find out if that works.

    newly created accounts are based on the default profile.   Take a look at how big the default profile is and you may have to do some manual clean up of the account (clearing temp files and etc)
