Windows 7 laptop login takes "forever" when disconnected from corporate network
Posted on 2010-08-27
I have a Windows 7 Pro laptop we recently got from Dell that is working great. All except when you want to login and are at home or somewhere else that you're not directly connected to the network.
The user complained of slow logins (5-15 minutes), and when asked in the office to reproduce the issue we could not. I assume this must be something related to the computer not being directly connected to the network.
My first inclination is to remove them from the domain, but I assume there is something else I can check/tweak first before having to resort to that. What can I look at to see why this is loading slow when outside our network, and what can I do to fix that?
