Revival of an old thread here but it seems to be the best mandatory profile discussion on here or at least that I've found besides the wiki. I'm currently redoing our students profiles on XP then will be looking at 7. Im at the stage of editing the registry hive as I've read a number of articles regarding reducing logon time by reducing the amount of registry changes needed from logon. What would you recommend clearing out as I don't want to go too spring clean happy! I havn't needed to make any real reg changes myself as desktops and my documents paths are set with GPO and app data isn't being saved anywhere other that local to save on storage. I'm also looking to disable the windows desktop search from loading up, it has the habbit of locking completly when users logoff but currently I have a near full registry hive in my mandatory student profiles!
