Windows 8.1 - Profiles for students
I just rolled up my first 8.1 image and it works, but when a user first logs on it takes forever - even longer than Windows 7 would having to create a profile from scratch. It seems to take the longest when installing apps for the new user profile and this is after I removed all the garbage provisioned apps through Powershell. We use local profiles here in the district for both staff and students. I'm guessing I could use a mandatory profile for the students, but am afraid of how it would affect wireless systems as it's a pretty regular occurrence for a teacher to fire up 30 netbooks under a single access point at once. To further add to the mess, student machines are frozen with Deep Freeze. How are you guys dealing with this? Thanks...

I setup my down default profile it fixed the issue. You can use the below script to deploy it via SCCM or something. If you do it manually make sure the administrators group is the owner of the folder.
rmdir /s /q "C:\Users\Default"
robocopy "Source" "C:\Users\Default" /dcopy:T /MIR /SL /r:0 /w:0
attrib C:\Users\Default +h
Exit /B 0
