[THIN] Re: The slowest Start button on the planet - guarantee d

No redirecting.  I will check the values of the User Shell Folders though.
We are forcing them via Kixtart script.

Are you redirecting the Start Menu or Programs folder?  I had a problem on
Win2k where an incorrect value in the User Shell Folders key for the Start
Menu was causing the start menu to not display when it was clicked.

Another similar problem I ran into was after I had migrated a profile that
was created on a NT4 TS to a W2k TS.  If I then logged in to a NT4 TS it
would take forever to the start menu to respond.  However, since you already
tried a fresh profile that probably isn't your issue.

I checked that one first Greg.  I completely blew mine away and started with
a fresh one.  Since that copies the Default User profile, ours is 473k.

How large is the profile being loaded?  I found once i managed to get my
profiles down to a couple of meg, "speed to start menu"
dramatically improved.
