    weird user problem, vague, but I am going to throw it out for suggestions :)

    I have one student who suffers with exceptionally long log in times ranging from 20 -45 mins.

    When I get him to log on to my test machine he logs on within 90 secs, anywhere else and it's crazy long log in times. I have even tried a laptop and after 15 mins it's still stuck on welcome.

    All his account settings are exactly the same as all other users, we use mandatory profiles so same profile as everyone else.

    I created a new account for him and copied his user area to his new folder, still the same problem.

    Crazy and I am stumped.

    Any ideas?

    Anything in event viewer? Application log catches af ew things at logon. Could it be a group policy or script running? (again, event viewer has a GP log)

    Create a NEW account and DON'T copy any existing files or profiles.
    See what happens.

    We had a similar problem when we installed our Ruckus wireless system. Turned out for us that certain XP laptops didn't like WPA2 security, but only when certain users logged on.

    A new profile (as above, brand new, not copying anything but their work across), seemed to solve the issue...
