    slowness

    not sure if any one else has came across but we have had some issue when it comes to profiles being loaded now pcs tend to be ok its mainly the laptops now our
    our profile size is 5.81 MB in size we do have "always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" gpo applied but im wondering if enabling cached logins would speed things up though

    So how long is it taking users to login? Generally speaking, anywhere between 30 second to a minute should be considered acceptable. It really depends what you have going on in the background.

    I would like to say about that it has been known for some laptops maybe the odd one were they are stuck on the please wait screen for awhile but I think that's down to the laptop maybe not being use for some time. but generally I would say between a 1 min to 3 we but then again the network has full wireless n coverage the laptops are not allow to stick with just the one ap also we have set the laptops to delete profiles upon start up

    I'd say the deleting profiles is going to slow things up big time.

    When I was having slow login problems I found this old thread a Godsend:

    Microsoft releases massive Slow Boot / Slow Login Hotfix Rollup (KB2775511)

    The other thing to check for is wayward print drivers, particularly if your using GPP to distribute your printers.

    Might be worth starting with no GPOs being applied to the laptops and then adding GPOs one by one to see what causes the slow down.

    Huge difference.

    Was going from random login times from 30 seconds up to about 5 or 10 minutes in some cases (frustratingly it was never machine specific) to pretty much 20 -30 seconds across the board.
