Hello Expeerts,
Just by chance I discovered our app performs much faster when launched from a session in the built in administrator...
when launched from a normal user the same app is clearly around 25% slower....
Sin our databases have grown a lot.... when performing certain procedures the difference in performance becomes clear to all users...
What can I do to prevent all users to be willing to work with administrative account ?
working with win 7, win server 2012 and stations HP core i3
Regards

Create regular, not administrator users....  I think I don't understand the question.

Use sysinterals' Procmon to troubleshoot. The program may be trying to write to a restricted folder. After some time, it gives up and writes to an alternative folder.

> only a LAN and local profiles.

Procmon could help to identify what is your application doing that ends up with that low performance.

For sure it could be several things to monitor;
http://www.howtogeek.com/school/sysinternals-pro/lesson4/all/

First of all we need to establish a hypothesis of what may be happening.  Because of different behavior depending on whether the user is an administrator or not, as pointed by NVIT, seems to be some kind of permissions issue.  You must identify if your application is trying to save or access some documents that are being blocked.

Using procmon is useful too to trace what files are being access by your app, event accesing the registry without proper permissions could be the problem.

The event viewer trace errors and warnings that could point out some clues.  Please, check it there too.
