    Problem User Account

    Hi

    I'm having an issue where one user in the school I'm working in takes ages to log in (unfortunatly it's the head). Any machine she logs in on hangs on applying settings after log on, then when the teacher who owns that machine logs on all her favs etc are gone (haven't seen this part for myself yet though). She has the exact same group policy applied as the teacher who owns the machine and she can log on fine. Server is Server 2008 R2 and laptops are Windows XP. The network was RM CC3 but when we migrated to server 2008 R2 from Server 2003 I moved everything out of the control of the RM GPO's and set my own up as they were playing havok with the new Win 7 laptops. Any ideas what might be causing this?

    Kind Regards

    Profile size?

    Have you tried running a Group Policy Results wizard as each user to see what it think is applied?

    As he said sounds like a profile issue.

    The profile sounds as if it needs to be deleted
    Be careful though because if you haven't redirected stuff, some of it might be saved in the profile - and even some documents if she has clicked on her name and saved there rather than "my docs"

    Roaming profiles aren't set up just folder re-direction (they have way to much stuff stored to have roaming profiles). I have issues on all the windows XP machines with this user but the Windows 7 machines work fine. Is it possible the local profile got corrupted on all these computers. I've checked gpresults and that looks like it should and I've compared a couple and they are the same. I'm tearing my hair out on this one, they want it sorted yesterday!

    Go into the location of the redirected folders and look for a hidden system file called desktop.ini and delete them. Log onto the XP machines but not 7 and see if it helps. I would search for the file as there are many of these.

    Just a point: We have roaming profiles and folder - and everything else - redirection - it works fine.

    Have you deleted the local profiles off the affected machines? If this user's profile is set up the same way as others that work then it might well be that something on the computer is causing the issue.

    You are very welcome - makes a change for me to solve someone's technical issue rather than begging others for help!
