Faster Logon/Logoff in Public PCs - ITS and I have been testing new configuration to allow for faster logon and logoff.  The Profile setting appears to be working. Logon is around 30 seconds. Logoff around 10 seconds. The recent upgrade to the campus network has also helped reduce the logon/logoff times.

To get the logon/logoff issue to work well we have had to disable the Windows Search service.  We are still checking to see if there is a way to re-enable the Windows Search service, but at this point the longest delays are related to the hold/release that Windows Search has over the profile.  I am considering installing an open source ( free ) Program that has it's own search built-in.

Please let me know if you have any Partons have issues with not having Windows Search enabled.
