Long wait times before Ctrl + Alt + Delete Login Screen Appears?

Hello EE, I am trying to narrow down the cause as to why domain joined Windows 7 x64 Ent computers take a very long time to get to the Ctrl + Alt + Delete login screen?

Scenario, remote users off the domain power on their laptops and it can take anywhere from 5 minutes upwards of 30 minutes for them to reach the login screen.

The one variable I have found to work past these long wait times is to disable the wireless adapter either hardware switch of FN hotkey and it will resolve this issue.

Another variable I have noticed is that if the wireless network in their area, if they have never connected it to it before, this is not a problem, only if they have saved the wireless network does it present a problem.

My thought here is it could be related to our Check Point VPN software but have not yet had the time to test with this removed.

Anyone else run into this issue before?

How did you resolve?

Anything I can test on my side to narrow down the root cause?

Thank you

Installed KB and tested and appears to have resolved for my PC, so going to test with some others.

Local GP does not show that setting to be configured at all yet but need to verify with server admin on the actual pushed GPO for this.

I would like to say issue resolved but please allow me a few more days to check on my end thank you for the help! Much appreciated!
