This is a problem that has always stumped me for years. I always run into one or two computers on the network that just take forever to display the log-in prompt. Yet these computers have the exact same hardware as any other machine on the network. Re-imaging always seems to fix this problem, but this is not always a good solution. I know it must be something software based since a re-image always seems to fix it.
What steps can I do to make this prompt display quicker? These machines always seem to be on a screen that says "applying network settings" or "preparing connections" Or something along those lines. Yet I don't see the hard drive light or network lights doing much. There must be a trick or a fix to this can somebody help me?
