Win 7 XP Mode Applying Personal Settings takes a long time
Posted on 2011-04-19
Purchased a few new laptops. They came with Windows 7 X64 on them. One of our accounting applications is older and wont run on any flavour of windows 7, however it will run great with XP Mode installed and running on top of Win7.
I have setup the XP Mode Virtual PC session, connected the virtual machine to the domain and all but one user logs in with no problem. The login is quick and works great.
One username. His name is Frank. (the controller of course) when I log in with his domain account it takes about 8 minutes of applying local settings and applying personal settings.
Usually when such a long logon process takes place it is Group Policy based in my environment so I moved him to a different OU and removed all policy inheritance and applied no policies to his machine. No fix.
I have logged into the XP mode vm with other usernames that exist in the same OU and have the same policies applied and they are all fine.
Strange thing, his long login occurs on all 4 new machines with their own xp mode installed fresh.
Any ideas? As far as I can tell it isnt a GP issue, it isnt a domain issue as 5 other accounts I have tried log in fine. But, then again, given that the same issue happens on different machines, the only thing it could be is a domain or policy issue.
I am stumped.
