Long delay after login


Recommended Posts

After I login, there's a long delay (5 Minutes) during which the computer is not doing anything (no cpu usage, no disk activity, no network activity). All of a sudden, the hard disk will start churning loads a couple for things for a few seconds and windows is now normal.

After the initial login, usernames in the task manager don't show up and many applications including applications that have anything to do with the internet do not launch. After that 5 minute delay, everything launches and computer works fine.

Here is my setup script: And I have already done an in-place Windows Re-installation. It still did not solve anything.

Personally, I'd just disable the Webclient service. It serves no real purpose anyway for 99% of users out there.

Ryan; you suggest disabling the webclient service.

Can that be done from the services section?

Yes it can be done that way in nLite, or you can do it manually after installation in services.msc
