Windows 7 64 bit, domain login takes 7 to 15 minutes for one user's profile and 6 seconds for the administrator.

    Question

  • Having problems with a long time to login to the domain (server is Windows 2008.)  Login takes 7 to 15 minutes for one user's profile and only 6 seconds for the administrator. The system is an HP 4520s ProBook running Windows 7 64 bit, 4 Gb RAM, Intel i5 CPU M460 @ 2.53 GHz. This is a new Win 7 laptop deployed about a week ago.

    Ran MSCONFIG and disabled all non essential apps. User also had the desktop background set to point to multiple photos for a background slideshow.  Changed it to the standard Windows 7 background, which takes login time down to about 2 to 4 minutes.  The administrator and other logins for other users on this machine take only 6 to 30 seconds. 

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the post!

    In order to figure out which took a long time during the boot ,I recommend you use the Process Monitor. Check which took the long time after winlogon.exe started.
