    Hi Raj3sh, have you enabled WDP on the computer? Does this issue  occur if you disable it?

     

    Meanwhile, you can try Clean Boot by using your account:

     

    1. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar/Run and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.

     

    Note: Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.

     

    2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray). Re-check Windows SteadyState Service.

    3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" . Re-check "Bubble" and "SCTUINotify". Click OK.

    4. Restart the computer and test the issue.

     

    Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

     

    Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment. If the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

     

    Hope this helps!

  • Thx,

    I could actually identify the issue was with the bubble and the notify file as well. However, i didnt want to waste boot up time anymore so I uninstalled the software, assuming that there is no fix around

  • Hi Sean,

    I have tried your solution above and it had no effect.

    I have had this issue with 2 different machines.  one I resolved by doing a clean install.  The other, that I am struggling with now, I've done a fresh install 3 times and am unable to get rid of the problem.

    Issue: This occurs after installing the WHS 2011 Connector.  When booting, after entering the password, the screen just hangs for 60-80 seconds without doing anything.

    If the connector is uninstalled, the computer returns to normal and boots normally without the hang.

    If the Microsoft account is removed and a local account is used instead, the computer boots normally.

    I have made the user name and password the same on the server as the microsoft account, this did not help.

    When uninstalling the connector, I have also removed the computer from WHS and setup fresh, to no avail.

    Computer is running Win 8.1 Pro

    Other computers on the network are running identically and connect just fine without the login delay.

    Any ideas?
