We are using roaming profiles.  Yesterday I eneabled folder redirection using a GPO.  It seems like folders are redirecting ok, but now when users go to log off, they get a prompt saying
"End Program - C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
Windows cannot end this operation.  IT mayu need more time to complete an operation..."
If the users click end now the system logs them off like it should.

Any thoughts?

Do you have any idea why cmd.exe is running? Is it already running when users want to log off, or is it started by the logoff or shutdown scripts?

as soon as i log in as a user and view the task manager, i see cmd.exe running under the logged in users' account

i also notice that xcopy is running for that user as well.  My only guess is it has something to do with the redirection.

good call, I forgot I had a GPO to copy an icon to the desktop and with our new servers it had issues finding the right path.  Thanks!
