I have an image I need to deliver for a customer as a sysprepped clone deployment. After the image is deployed and our other software is installed, the user is supposed to create local accounts for the users that will be on the system. Lately we have discovered that when we create a new user account (member of the User group) and try to login as that user, the system will hang while running the "Setting up personalized settings for: Internet Explorer". We have found that we can use Ctrl Alt Delete and then force a reboot and login again, which usually allows it to continue. I have also found that I can run Task manager to see that the process that is hanging is running with the command line "shmgrate.exe OCInstallUserConfigIE".
I've searched all over Google and tried monitoring it with Procmon and I haven't been able to find a previous solution or identify a file/registry problem. ANyone have any ideas on this? Anyone know exactly how shmgrate sets up the user profile? Or maybe about User Profiles in general?
