Taskbar Pause (35 Sec) After Switching User

I use fast user switching frequently. But recently, every time I switch to my particular user it takes approximately 35 seconds before the task bar is usable and the system tray is displayed. Running programs are usable during this time and alt-tab also works. Of 5 users on this PC, mine is the only one to have this problem.

In order to reproduce this all I have to do is switch to a different user then "switch user" back to the welcome screen then log in to my user. It does it every time.

During the 35 second pause there is no additional cpu activity and no additional disk activity. there might be some additional network activity but not noticeable.


The problem has only started happening recently. I've been trying to rack my brains as to exactly what changed at exactly that time. The most significant changes recently are (i think):
1) I installed a second 500GB harddrive and moved my personal folder onto it (the one normally under documents and settings). I changed all of my file references in the registry to point to the new location, including my ProfileImagePath. This is nothing new to me, all of the users on this pc have a non-default location for their documents and settings (and they don't have this problem).
2) I installed XP Service Pack 3.

Please Help. Thanks.

Hello tpot1,

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. We aim to provide the valuable service known to come from BC to every member we can, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Upon completing the steps below, a staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order, clean and free of malware.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save to your Desktop.
alternate download site

DSS will do the following:
  • Create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
  • Clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, Internet Cache Files, and empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
  • Check some important areas of your system and produce a report for an analyst to review.
  • Automatically run HijackThis. It will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have it installed. So if HijackThis is not installed and DSS prompts you to download it, please answer yes.
You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges when using.
  • Close all applications and windows.
  • Double-click on dss.exe to run it and follow the prompts.
  • If your anti-virus or firewall complains, please allow this script to run as it is not
    malicious.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open in Notepad:
    • main.txt <- this one will be maximized
    • extra.txt <- this one will be minimized
  • If not, they both can be found in the C:\Deckard\System Scanner folder.
  • Please copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
-- When running DSS, some firewalls may warn that it is trying to access the Internet especially if your asked to download the most current version of HijackThis. Please ensure that you allow it permission to do so.
-- If you get a warning from your anti-virus while DSS is scanning, please allow DSS to continue as the scan is not harmful.


If you already preformed the steps above, we still need to see the current state of the machine. A fresh scan and logs are still necessary

Click on Start then Run
Copy and paste the following in bold in the open window and then click OK
"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /config
This will open up DSS configuration
Click on Check All
Click Scan
DSS will now run again when finished
Please post back both logs that open in notepad
Main txt and extra txt



Next
Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
