Description: Edit

If you go to sign in on a computer on a domain and it is taking longer than usual or anything more than a minute, try these steps.

To Resolve: Edit

1. You want to look for network slowness first, many times this is a failing switch or break in communication between the workstation and the Domain Controller.

2. Go ahead and login. Once in, Run - regedit.

3. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

4. Create a DWORD and name it "verbosestatus" with a Data Value = 1.

5. Exit regedit and logoff the account. Now sign back in, I have seen this work multiple times.
