    I spent most of today taking a proper look at our logons. It gets to the 'Preparing Your Desktop...' at around 15/20 seconds, then it decides to keep preparing it for a further 20/30 seconds... Is there a way to tell what is going on behind the scenes?

    Check eventlog on a client to see if it's struggling with something (like permissions on redirected/shared desktops) and also enable verbose logging as mentioned before to see if it can narrow things down.

    Just checked it again on a test machine (on HyperV) and got 22 seconds logon. Yet it is still taking its time on the TS/Citrix Servers... Strange

    What do you have on the desktop?

    We've found that removing most of the icons from the desktop makes it logon quicker. It turns out that our students use the start menu anyway, so no-one really notices if I remove lots of icons.

    We have nothing on the desktop for students, and Staff only have the Recycle Bin.
