    Deploying Printer Settings - after dirty shutdown

    Got a little problem at school. It seems that when the children shutdown Win7 computers incorrectly (IE: holding the power button/dirty shutdown), there is a delay in the log-on time of over 10 minutes. The computer is stuck on the screen, 'Deploying printer settings...' and the error log records: 'The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> is taking long time to handle the notification event (CreateSession).' repeated, for around ten minutes.
    If you shut the computer down correctly, there is 'Deploying printer settings..' but it lasts only seconds, and the computer starts up quicker and as it should do.

    This only appears in specific rooms and seemingly, only when the computer is shut down incorrectly.

    Has anyone seen this before and could anyone suggest a solution?

    Thanks

    Although not related to the printers, If you haven't put this hotfix in yet it may be the WMI repairing itself before applying printers.

    Might be worth testing it.

    What's going on?!

    You may want to install KB2775511 and KB2732673 instead of just KB2617858 (since the KB2775511 includes tons of performance fixes).

    I've not been at the school for long so I'm not sure what hot fixes are applied but I'll give these a go on a test box next week thanks! It seems there are many topics on various login issues but it's so probable that each problem is different.
