    I haven't at the moment, went the last year without Quicktime and was okay but now I've got there some iPods Touchs floating around for educational purposes so I need iTunes somewhere to let teachers updates Apps and such. Not my idea and I'm not convinced it's a good one, not particularly keen on everything Apple related being managed through music and app stores with no enterprise tools.
    With my profile speed issue I've only got Smartboard Notebook (and it doesn't seem to be copying masses of stuff into the profile) and LanSchool installed. The only thing generating sizable files is Windows Mail.

    What a bs about Google Apps... this is a very functional web app... it does not slow down login... Itīs just a rant probably.

    Thanks for the hint about Windows mail. Even if it isnīt īinstalledī it creates a 20mb database folder for each user at login.

    To disable:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}]
    "IsInstalled"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}]
    "IsInstalled"=dword:00000000

    Last key is additional for 64 bit systems only.

    Have you got a slow logon when using the default profile as a mandatory profile too?

    Thanks so much for this, we have been having this problem since rolling out Windows 7 and keep getting pestered by staff as to why it takes so long for students to logon. Disabling the Windows Mail registry key has cut down login time to about twenty seconds in my testing so I am about to use Group Policy to apply this to all our lab machines and see how that goes.

    Looks like a filescreen for desktop.ini files was the cause of my problem.

    Just wondering if there anything else to look for with regards to a delay 'Preparing your Desktop'. Seems we have ~20 delay at this point.

    Just timed ours, 10-13 seconds at the moment. Check in Event Viewer > Applications & Services Logs > Microsoft > Group Policy to see what's taking the time. Mine has a 10 second delay in processing User Policy I might take a look at to see if I can cut that down at all.

    Killing the WinMail key makes a big difference, once that's down and the GPOs suggested in the other thread not sure how much more can be done.
