    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    Glad to be of help to someone at last!

    It's definitely a M/S problem and not a Citrix problem. I read somewhere in a forum (I can't remember which forum at the moment) that M/S know about the problem with the IE7 Branding dll but don’t have a fix for it as it's a core dll.

    Also forgot to mention that Windows File Protection will pop up when you rename/replace the dll in the dllcache folder. Also noticed that windows updates also seem to replace the IE6 dll with the IE7 dll.

    I guess what would be handy is a script of some sort that renames the IE7 branding dll and copies the IE6 dll to the right place. My scripting skills are not that good ops: but it have been able to make a batch file that can do it, but only when an administrative account is logged on.

    Anyone want to rise to the challenge of writing a script for this :?:

    Yes I realise it's not a Citrix problem. This can be illustrated by connecting via RDP or logging onto the Console and suffering from the dame delay.

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    ah.... havent installed IE7 on any of the workstations. Holding off on that for alittle longer. However I have installed the MS patch for xp. this has speeded up login in times to 30 seconds. do i need to apply the 2003 patch to my DC server?

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    I only applied 899409 to my XP clients, I would personally leave the DC as it is... what were your login times before you applied 899409?

    It might be best to keep away from IE7, until M/S have a fix for it or if they ever intend make one. Lets hope that they do...

    Is IE6 still getting security updates?

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    I have spotted a problem in using the IE6 branding dll. I have some favourites defined in my GPO which are being applied, but the url for the listed favourites are jumbled up e.g. I have two shortcuts’ one for goggle and one for hotmail the goggle link gets the url for hotmail and visa versa.

    I have also noticed that with the IE6 branding dll in place my WSUS server is forcing IE7 to be reinstalled which of course puts back the IE7 dll. I guess if you are using a terminal server environment you might not have it as a WSUS client, so this might not be an issue.

    Sorry I did not notice this earlier!

    Re: Logon Times/Speed

    Hi, I have just spotted on the Citrix forum that MS now have a non public 32-bit hotfix for this, KB941158 is what it is called.

    However trying to get them to give you the hotfix over the phone is difficult. I have tired and failed, where others have tried and succeeded

    There also is a posting that referes to making a registry key change to stop IE GPO from being processed which also seems to stop the logon delays.
