I have a brand new Windows 7 Dell laptop, imaged, with very few apps and Symantec EndPoint protection.

It's part of the domain.

Takes 5 mins for "Logging off" process to finish. No matter what I do, Log Off, Shutdown, or shutdown -r -f -t 01 command, it takes about 5 mins for Logging off step to finish.

I went into Performance, Information and Tools and do not see any warnings.

garryshape--What programs are still running when you try to shutdown?
You might look at Task Manager| Applications or run Process Explorer just prior to shutdown.

The solution in this case appears to be the battery unplug zapping the pram or whatever
Hi garryshape,
Are you using roaming profiles ?
I had the same on a wifi connected laptop because of the heavy profile which need to be pushed to the roaming profile server, with Ethernet cable connection, it is MUCH faster
I hope this may help to diagnose
Good luck

Not using roaming profiles I think the Dell is just lame

This is the solution for Dell. Others may apply in different situations, but I want people searching for the answer - especially if it's for E5410 or E-series - to apply this answer.
