Hi!,

Ive got a netwroked laptop. When i boot it up it seems to hang for 5 minutes on "applying computer settings"

Once im at the desktp there are no problems at all and the laptop runs with ease.

Any idea why this is happening.

Last week the laptop gave the error "unmountable disk". I fixed this by using a boot cd and running chkdsk /r

It fixed some corrupt files and the laptop was able to boot.

However now it hangs on "applying computer settings"

Any ideas?

Thanks very much.

what if you boot into safe mode with networking...does it do the same? what about regular safe mode (regular safe mode won't allow for the networking)

but it does go through the "applying settings" and what not correct?

goahead and log in normally then do
start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Ok here you are: System Errors

Error : Netlogon Event 5719

Error : W32Time Event 29

Error :Kerberos Event 7

Error : W32Time Event 29

Error DCOM Event 1005

There were no application errors


Hope this helps.

I had this problem and solved it by doing the following (did almoast all suggestions from theis thread before that, without success)

* Enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP in advanced TCP/IP settings. (was set to Default before)
Removed the "Networking services" windows components:
* IPV6 firewall
* Internet gateway device discovery and control client

I think it was the last one that did the trick, blocking networking util it was through searching my net for unexisting controlable gateways.

Where can I find the "Networking services" windows components you're talking about?

Thanks

I will try with a different logon name.

Will enalblijng netbois over tcp/ip affect the persons ability to use the network?

no no...it won't make a difference as far as them being able to log in or not...it just changes some of the background processes...IF it were to cause an issue..you can always reverse the change
