I find it useful to confirm that GP processing is really the cause of these
things. Check out my gptime utility:




it will tell you how long GP processing took on a remote or local box during
the last processing cycle

What is it startup hanging on? (i.e. "running startup scripts", "applying
computer settings", "waiting for network").That will usually give you a
general idea where the hangup is. 


For more specific information you need to enable verbose logging in Group
Policy and start digging through the logs. This is a good place to start if
you're unsure of what to do:

Hi All,

I'm new to the list, please be gentle.

We are having reports of slow start-ups across our estate (time it takes to
get to ctrl+alt+del) , no changes were made as our team control GPO's, I'm
after some assistance in how I could start troubleshooting, any good tools,
blogs, articles, videos etc?

We are Windows XP SP2/Windows 2003.

I'm going to start looking on Monday when I'm back in the office, any
advice, help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
