How to Resolve Slow Login

If a user experiences a slow login with considerable time displaying "Loading Personal Settings", this is related to the user profile.

First, inspect the size of the profile and delete any large items not needed (mp3s, wavs, pdf's etc - which should be stored in a redirected My Documents not in the profile).

If problem still exists and profile is small in size, try recreating profile.

rename current profile by changing extension to OLD.

Have user log in and then log out to create a new blank profile.
After they have logged back out, copy:
Application Data folder
UserData folder
from old profile to new.

User's login performance should improve.
