Where can I find a program to monitor the initial login of a user onto a domain computer running Windows 7?

Whenever a user logs onto a computer under my domain it takes them at least 5 - 6 minutes for them to create a local profile and for them to get to the desktop. i am trying to find a program that will monitor what is going on in the time between the login screen to the desktop.  Something that can monitor what their pulling from the server, what group policys are in affect, any authentication details etc... anything that could possibly help me find what the holdup is!

Thank you

Your question title includes "initial login," suggesting that this event occurs when users connect for the first time.  Do you know the status of the default user profile?

When I said initial login, i meant as in the user has never used that specific machine before and they are pulling their profile information from the server. I do not know the status of the default user profile

Do you know the size of the roaming profile that they're pulling?

They are not pulling a roaming profile. They are using a default template that is around 28 MB. However the login times vary depending on the user which is odd.

Yes it is.  Having just begun to apply Windows7 in a Server 2003 environment, I'd recommend looking at its local security unless you've already gotten that out of the way.  Perhaps you could also check to see whether validating the template for smooth use with Windows7 is a possible course of action.

Group policy was indeed the case! After testing two machines putting them in a different OU the login process was expedited... Thank you EE!
