At work we have a network of about 50 pcs on a windows 2008 network.
What has been happening is when a user is away for more than a week they can not log on to the network.
After entering their credentials the 'welcome' screen with the swirling wait icon appears and will run for over twenty four hours and will not log in.
The IT guys have come up with a fix that seems a bit excessive.
Login a in safe mode on another PC that they have never used before and delete the user profile.
This has been working but I would like to get experts advice on what they think is going on. So that I can impress the IT guys with my suggestions for a permanent fix on Monday morning.
