I have a gremlin....possibly profile gremlin
Ok i wiil try my best to describe this.
I know its happens around the school, dont think its all machines/users but its a few. Only staff as far as im aware too.
User logs onto machine, now im not sure whether this happens before or after "apply settings" etc but it just hangs and stays on a plain blue (usual windows blue) background. The only cure is to hold down the power button to turn the machine off and then on again and they usually log in successfully this time round. This can also happen at log off to...where the screen clears of icons, start menu etc goes blue and just hangs.
Teachers profiles are roaming....redirected desktop.
This little pest needs to be hunted down and destroyed!
Anything you need to know ask!
