How to troubleshoot a slow Windows 7 login process for regular user account
Posted on 2011-02-24
I am systems administrator preparing new computers we bought from DELL just recently that come with Windows 7 Professional. I had no problems performing my admin duties on the PC such as adding the computer to the AD domain and setting up the AV and other software on the system, but when I create a regular user profile on the PC it takes a long time no only for setting the profile for the first time, but also any other time that the regular user account is used to log into the PC. The Admin account works fine and it load pretty quickly, but when we use the regular user account it takes forever. I don't have any kind of roaming profile GPO policies or home/shared folders for the users on our network, so I am not sure why this is happening. I has not happen on any other systems until now, but I am not sure how to troubleshoot this problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
