GPCLIENT taking a long time to process logon/logoff (60minutes)

Some of my new Vista Buisness x86 machines are taking an long time to long in, over an hour sometimes close to 2 hours.

I see the following error's in the event log, and am not sure where to go from here, this does not affect all users which is what is throwing me off here,

Hate to start with the obvious, but I hate to see threads with no activity......

Is DNS for the DC set as the primary in these Vista PCs?

I figured out half of my problem, I got the log in under 30 seconds now, but the logoff is still taking a long while, I'm not sure exactly but i would guess about anther hour im going to wait and see how long this takes to process.

The issue i had with the logon was I had a deployed printer under the computer configuration side to be deployed and im guessing because the computer dosent have rights to the printer or something like that slowed it down, by removing it from there altogether the computer loged on just fine.

Now im just left with the log off event taking forever...

I figured out the last part of my problem, Again it was related to the printers in GP, I removed all printers from the deployed printer groups completly, and only left them in "User configuration-Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Printers" I added the option to run the printers in the logged-on users security context (user policy option) and that brought my logoff time down to 8 seconds,

My log on time is about 32 for the windows stuff and 15 for the kix script to run,

So long story short it was related to how the printers were being deployed in GP.
