Does anyone know the industry standard of what is considered an acceptable time for a desktop to completely load after entering in your passwords. Are there any articles that provide a chart or something?

I have been researching unsuccessfully to find such information.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Often, large roaming profiles will take the longest time, especially those where either Dropbox or one drive us sync in.
Cure for large roaming profiles is to use folder redirection .

Often, a corrupted, or a profike that did not unload.. Could spin for a while to setup the temp.....

How long is long for your situations? 30, 60, 300 seconds? In relation to the bootup time?
