  • There are a variety of reasons your computers are running slow at startup, a common theme I have found is your startup programs. I suggest disabling all programs from startup. To do this follow these steps:

    1) Open GPO

    2) Go to User configuration, Administrative Templates, System, and Logon

    3) In the right pane, right click on Run these programs at user logon click on Edit

    4) Click Disabled
