  • Log On Delay

    Hi,

    When I log on to Windows 7 (ultimate, domain client) it takes maybe 2 minutes from CONTROL /ALT/DELETE to desktop but only if I C/A/D immediately after boot (if I wait a few minutes, say I'm doing something else) then log on can be very rapid so presumably something is taking some time to run but runs before or after logon. This is a relatively recent effect (didn't occur because of being on a Windows 2003 domain and wasn't solved when migrated to a Windows 2008 domain).

    The nearest thing I can liken it to is when I installed VMWare server on my XP system ... there were about 5 services involved and it took nearly 2 minutes to log on but I don't have VMWare on the system.

    Now I realise that people are unlikely to be able to help me without information (nor I to help myself) but can anyone suggest a way of tracking whatever it is that's causing the delay since I'm effectively locked out of the machine until I get to desktop.

    In Group Policy, are computers configured to wait for the network at startup? If not, it could be that you're trying to logon before the computer's network connection is established.

    Anything in the event logs?

      Nothing in the event log that stands out and I doubt it is the network connection because it didn't use to happen (it used to log on quickly).

      Well at least I only have to wait another month as I've pre-ordered Win 7 which means that I should have an early (non-beta) copy in my hands real soon and plan to rebuild my system, over a three disk array then ... still it would be nice to know what's causing it.
