    What's going on?!

    Hi All.

    Hopefully someone has come across this before.

    1. Our students are shutting down the pcs by holding in the power button. After this the pcs are taking over 30mins to apply computer settings. Once this runs through its fine.

    2. Students are getting impatient when logging on to our library laptops & also holding in the power button during logon, this seems to corrupt the profile then after this it takes 30-45 mins to log in. If I run a delprof on the machine all is fine.

    Any idea why this is happening...It's driving me mad.

    cheers

    Do you have any startup scripts that might be taking a long time to finish?

    Have you enabled verbose startup messages so you can see if its hanging on anything specific?

    Do they do the same if you restart them cleanly?

    Only a logon script for mapping drives, verbose mode on, gets stuck applying computer settings at boot up, or applying user settings at log on. It only happens after a forced shutdown & once its gone through its fine. Until you force a shutdown, by holding in the power button, everything works fine & is actually pretty fast.

    We get this often too, and found out it was down to windows trying to repair various bits and bobs in the background during logon. We've pretty much told people to be more careful with shutting down machines and left it at that, interested to hear further thoughts.

    There's a hotfix for the slow logins once they're been shutdown. As its to do with WMI database repairing itself.

    Unexpectedly slow startup or logon process in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7

    Taking our logins down from 30+ mins when they break it, to 2-3
