Q

Is there any way to speed up the login process?

I have Windows 2000 Professional in my office. It takes too much time when "applying computer settings". My users are complaining about the slow login process, but I don't know how I can boost this process.
The user profiles are probably too large. Move the My Documents folder out of the user profile and configure a folder redirection through GPO. However, this may cause a bit of difficulty with notebook systems when away from the network if you don't then configure offline files.
