    How can I remove "Setting up Personalized Settings" on login

    Hi everyone, I'm just polishing the new RIS Image, as I'm moving on from WinSuite now. I've managed to resolve most problems, but this one is a bit more cosmetic.

    I have the profiles removed when a user logs off from the PC they are using. Then , when any user without a local profile logs on it brings up a window in the top left with "Setting Up Personalized Settings" and then runs through things like Internet Explorer , Outlook Express, Desktop Update etc.

    I have found this bit of info which links to the other web pages I have seen on the subject. http://discussions.virtualdr.com/sho...d.php?t=205556

    I was just wondering if anyone else has this cosmetic problem, and if you just ignore it, or can hide it or get rid of it completely.

    Thanks in advance.

    And any Bioshock players out there - Would you Kindly find out the answer for me?

    It doesn't bother us. For us, on our CC3 network, it's an indication that a user's romaing profile has been reset.

    This is a particular annoyance for me as every so often we will get several PC's which deceide to hang at this part and not go any further. If anybody does know how to get rid of it then that would be brilliant. Sorry to hijack the thread.

    well I thing user profiles go along with user accounts, I dont think user accounts will exist without profiles, it is like setting a new bank account but without you giving your profile. at least in windows accounts and profiles are mutually dependent.

    This is a symptom of a deeper problem. Usually involving file/directory permissions, GPOs and/or DNS. GPMC Modeling/Results and/or dcdiag/netdiag can help. You'll have to check permissions and group memberships manually though.

    Is this in reply to myself, or tscnmuk?

    I understand the relationships between user accounts and profiles. I'm just asking if there is a process / fix to either hide or remove the "Personalised Settings" windows popping up every time a student logs onto a client XP PC.

    I'm going to be lazy, and ask for a copy of that reg patch if that would be possible.

    Thanks.

    Re: How can I remove "Setting up Personalized Settings" on l

    What you could do is create a fake student username, log it in (ensuring that you DON'T clear it's profile at logoff) - logon as Administrator and then copy the profile somewhere else - then use that as a mandatory profile - alot of the post-setup garbage is done for you and you still get a mandatory profile.

    Might be worth running through the .MAN file with regedit just to be sure it hasn't left anything nasty in there though.

    Does this hide it or disable it?

    the post from azreal is the way we do it.

    Stop GP to clear the profiles login as a student, log out. Log in as admin and copy the student profile to a network share and make it mandatory. IIRC we've set that directory to read only as well.

    All student accounts point to that profile.

    Oh and don't forget to reenable the GP for delete profiles on logoff

    As an update to this, if you are using 64-bit you will need to modify

    HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components

    This will take care of the "Personalize Settings" window during logon.

    Thanks

    We setup a "default user" profile on the local machine modified exactly how we want it in the image. Then when a new user logs in they get that profile and any additional things that the GPOs add.
