We have a webapp that we launch out through Citrix for external users. This webapp displays documents through an ActiveX control (the Oracle OutsideIn File Viewer). For most users, flicking between documents takes ~1.6 seconds, but for one user it only takes 0.6 seconds. We would like all users to have this performance.
However, we've been totally unsuccessful in establishing what it is about this profile that makes it so much faster.
We don't have roaming profiles set up. We do know it's that specific user profile on that specific box.
We tried cloning the system and using sysprep to make the fast profile the default user, however whatever sysprep does didn't carry over the magic that makes it fast.
We're totally at a loss as to where to even start establishing what makes this different. We've gone through all the IE settings we possibly could. We've tried looking through ProcMon logs without anything jumping out. Our suspicion is it's to do with the way files are downloaded by the ActiveX control and saved to a temp location, but we're really not sure how to go about changing behaviour.
So, in short, any ideas on how to clone profiles not using sysprep (supported or unsupported) or how to run down the differences between two very similar user profiles would be hugely appreciated.
