    It is being used as a logon script...

    Every machine I put into the OU now hangs when logging off. Very Bizzare indeed.

    I have removed all logoff scripts and still....hmmm....

    Just as an aside to this post - where did you get the Res.exe from to change the screen resolution on boot?

    I've been looking for a simple scripting way to do this and so far have found the best way would be to write my own!

    That Qres looks interesting - whats the res.exe? Ideally this could be used with parameters in a startup script.

    You won't get rid of the "applying personal settings" box - it's supposed to be there but it shouldn't be there for long.

    If you google for "applying personal settings" slow then you'll find lots of people with the same problem and various ways to try and fix it - DNS can be a cause here.

    One thing you can do is to turn on logging - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/221833 gives details of how to do this. You will then get a text file %Systemroot%\Debug\UserMode\Userenv.log which contains details of what's going on. it's not the easiest file to understand but what you're looking for is whether there's a long gap between entries - this indicates something which is taking a long time that you can try and fix.

    http://www.sysprosoft.com/policyreporter.shtml is worth downloading (free!) - it will make more sense of the userenv.log file

    One final note - if you turn up userenv debug logging (as in the KB article) then turn it down again when you're done - the process of creating the verbose log will itself slow down logon.

    What did you do to fix your logoff script problem, I cant stop using roaming profiles as you need roaming profiles when using offline files. Dont you??

    Thanks

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    Quackers - I've got a question for you. How do you copy the profile to the server? Do you just use copy and paste or the profiles page of the control panel bit?

    I use the Profile Page in the system control to copy to a local folder, and set Everyone on the security part. Then i just copy and paste to the server.

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    Hi Guys, What a thread!

    I have been trying to get better logon speeds, as they were about 40-50 seconds. The 899409 patch brought them down to about 30 seconds, according to the UserEnvDebug log.

    I also noticed in the UserEnvDebug log that the logon process was pausing for about 20 seconds when the Internet Explorer Branding was happening. I did alot of googling and found some stuff out about the same thing happening in Terminal Server environments. It Turns out that there is a bug with the IE7 Branding dll which causes the problem. Replacing the IE7 branding dll to a IE6 version dll (iedkcs32.dll version 16.0.3790.1830) solves the problem.

    When I replaced the dll my login times recorded in UserEnvDebug logs were 8 seconds :P (I'm using a mandatory user profiles with GPO's) Not sure at this point if there are any problems with using the IE6 Branding dll, but applying any hotfixes or service packs will replace the dll.

    Has anyone else spotted this?

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    You should see iedkcs32.dll version 17.00.6000.16512 in %windir%\system32 and %windir%\system32\dllcache on XP Pro SP2 if IE7 is installed. You may have to turn off hide file extensions for known file types and show hidden files and folders to find both of them.

    I had to rename the %windir%\system32\dllcache\iedkcs.dll other wise if you replace the %windir%\system32\iedkcs.dll with version 6.00.3790.1830 it will be replaced with the later version from the dllcache.

    It is the version 17.00.6000.16512 which slows down the Internet Explorer branding. I found the 6.00.3790.1830 on one of my 2003 servers which does not (luckily) have IE7 on it.

    Here is a link to the forum that i found all this stuff about the IE7 branding dll causing the problem. The credit is really down to them http://support.citrix.com/forums/thr...art=0&tstart=0
