Long 'Preparing your Desktop' delay
We are starting to roll out new desktops with Windows 7 Enterprise SP1. For the initial troubleshooting, I have turned the verbose logon option on. The problem we are having is that each time a user logs into a workstation for the first time, there is a 30-45 second delay at 'Preparing your Desktop.' (The rest of the logon process only takes about 10-15 seconds). We do have an image set as the user background, so the issue with the solid color background images causing a delay should not be the cause of this problem.
Any ideas on how to possibly reduce this delay at 'Preparing your Desktop'?
