This all happened after I created a GPO for testing a plug in deployment to my machine. However, I completely removed the GPO so it is no longer linked to my machine. Now, seems like the GPO settings is cached somewhere on my system because my system hangs each time I log in at the Welcome screen. I've checked Event Viewer, but cannot identify where it's hanging. Is there anything I can check on my machine? I know that if I do not plug my machine to a network, I will not have this problem. But still, even doing that, it takes about 2-4 minutes to bypass the "Welcome.." screen and load into my desktop. This is a Windows 7 machine.
