One problem is just the fact that you may have a lot of GPOs to apply.
GPOs take time to apply. If some of your GPOs are only Computer or
User-based, you can disable the configuration that is not utilized by
the GPO for better performance (i.e. quicker log-in time). For example,
if you have a GPO created with a bunch of computer settings, on the
Details tab of the GPO you can select which part of the GPO to disable;
in this case it would be "User configuration settings disabled". Hope
that helps...

Subject: [gptalk] Login Time Issues


I have a couple of users that have to wait 10-15 minutes when they login
while GPOs are being deployed. If I move their laptops to a Test OU the
problem disappears. If I block inheritance on the existing OU the
problem disappears. I have therefore made the assumption that the
problem is being caused by one of the GPOs that is being inherited from
an OU above. When logging on their screen stays on Applying Computer
Settings for the majority of the time it takes to login.  I have
assigned all the GPOs that they usually run to a test OU and have been
disabling them one at a time to try to find the offending GPO. Is there
a quicker way of finding out which GPO is causing the problem?
