I wanted to know what exactly is loaded when Windows XP "Loads your Personal Settings"  I am having a problem with a user on a domain with a roaming profile.  It takes about 10 minutes when he logs onto a new computer to load his personal settings.  I was wondering what was causeing this so i could go about clearing (or cleaning up) whatever data is loaded.  Any help would be appreciated.

I'd suggest you have the user check the desktop for large files, which will get pushed when he/she logs on. Another spot to check is if they have mapped drives or shares, and the profile is trying to set up the active share. If there is a bad share (usually a password issue, or a permissions issue, or even if a machine is off-line), it will time out eventually... but it takes a while.

The size of the profile for sure had something to do with it i found the large files buried within some temp file in Application Data under a java folder.
