hi all,

the situation is that winxp machines in a domain environment are all experiencing slow logon issue.
after enter user name and pwd then hit enter, applying computer setting and personal settings are taking some time( still reasonable ) but after that, no icon no window is appearing on screen (only wallpaper is shown). in task manager, i can see userinit.exe is running. this will take some time untill explorer.exe loads.

i suspect that winxp is trying to access some network shares during userinit.exe
is there anyway to find out what network shares winxp is trying to access during userinit process? and along with time spent ?
is there any tools??

note: i want to know what network shares not what processes that are running during userinit.exe

It seems that some GPO is causing the issue.On the windows XP cleint PC check the event logs I am sure that you will get interesting logs.

Also make sure that the health of the DC is ok.Ran dcdiag /q and repadmin /replsum on the DC to check the same.

On one of the client PC try this method.
Type Regedit on the run task, then located this path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Image File Execution Option\Explorer.exe <<<--- Delete this folder if you can see this one or
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Image File Execution Option\Your Image File Name Here without a path <<<<--- Delete this one if you cannot find the Explorer.exe
3. Restart your PC and check.

Open regedit

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Fi the reg key below does not exist already then create it

Entry: UserEnvDebugLevel
Type: REG_DWORD

Set the value to UserEnvDebugLevel to 0x00030002


Now reboot and log in. Once login process has finished examine the log file.  
%Systemroot%\Debug\UserMode\Userenv.log

If you cant make any sense of it, paste the section of it from the time you start to login to the end on hear.

This one should show you network access....

Process Monitor can enable boot logging, so you can see whats happening in EXTREME DETAIL............

Options>Select Enable Boot Logging, and reboot.... After reboot, launch Procmon to compile the logs.....

Then you can look at the times to see where your delays are......

This one is not nearly as complex...
