Server 2008 R2 Terminal Server slow logon

When logging on to the server the logon times take roughly 3minutes.  

The event viewer displays an error: The winlogon notificatino subscriber <GPClient> took 180 seconds to handle the notification event (startShell).

I am confused to what is causing the issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Yes both.

These mapping worked fine on Thursday and there are no errors regarding logons in event viewer earlier before 18/8 .

Software was installed on the server this day by a 3rd party company. I called them to ask if the install makes any changes to the user profiles. They advised the application did not make any changes.

Issue resolved.

I disabled “Run logon scripts synchronously”  via regedit.
