Siebel Web Client causes slow boot


I am starting with a fresh install of XP SP2. PC is on a domain. I can login user after user just fine. Then I install Siebel Web Client 8.0 and any user I login as slow boots, about 5-6 minutes and then doesn't process the netlogon script. I log the user off and log back in, netlogon scripts process just fine and this process takes a normal amount of time. So there must be something in the boot process killing this. I noticed in the ntbtlog file that all the drivers stop loading after MUP.sys but I know that may be coincidence. Also, Add/Remove programs uninstall of Siebel brings the PC back to normal boot times and netlogon script gets processed. I've been working this issue for about two weeks now.

Did you try to disable the "Siebel Quickstart Service" service ?

I did not...I will try that and let you know. I swear that I went through services however looking for anything Siebel related and didn't find anything. I will try again. Thanks for the reply.

Thank you. It worked. Here's the deal. I saw it in there and the service was listed as Automatic but it was never running, so I thought it to be harmless. Clearly, it wasn't. When I disabled it, I restarted the PC about  5-10 times using different logins and it came right up.

I've been working on this over 4 weeks and clearly sometimes it's the most simplest solution that eludes us...

Thanks for your help again.
