Powershell Script takes a long time when run as logon RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a Windows 8 Pro workstation which is not on a domain. I have created logon script with the gpedit snapin. The logon on script is a Powershell script, and all it does is output a message in a message box. There are no other scripts running and nothing strange about the workstation - in fact it is a newly installed Windows 8.1 PC.

    It shouldn't take any noticeable time to process this scrtipt, and yet, right now it's taking around 5-6 minutes for the message to appear after the user logs on, which completely defeats the purpose of having it, since the idea is the user reads the message before the sessions starts!!

    I mean I could understand it if it were a few seconds, or a minute even. But like FIVE minutes?? I really need to get to the bottom of this.

    Can anyone help / advise?
