I have a terminal server running on a Windows 2008 machine.  I have one user when they sign in their session is extremely slow and often kicks them out.  Anyone have any suggestions?  all of the other users are fine.

The problem can be in one of three places.
1.  Network connection.
     Does the problem user connect to the TS differently from the others?

2.  Client computer.
    Does the problem user still have a problem if they connect from a different client?  Something on the client computer could be causing the problem.

3.  User profiles problem on the Terminal Server.

Can you delete their user profile and recreate it?  

1.  Backup profile
2.  Delete profile
3.  Log in under their account (this recreates their profile)
4.  Test profile
5.  If no problem arises, then restore profile from backup.
6.  If problem returns then the profile is corrupted somewhere you will have to start with a clean new profile and configure it as needed.

Do they have a very large file in their profile?  A classic end user mistake is they put some massive file on their desktop which has not been redirected.  This makes their login *abysmally* slow.  The worst case I saw -- a user had put a CD ISO image on their desktop, and the customer had decided not to redirect the desktop (good decision at the time for them).
