Our Windows 7 computers/laptops are very slow at logoff, around 7 minutes (no problem at log on). We don't have this issue on XP clients. Problem occurs after adding the Win7 clients on domain.

I tried to reset user profile. After resetting logoff takes around 2 minuted and after everyday it takes longer and longer

We are using roaming profiles.

Event Viewer:

Event ID: 6005 The winlogon notification subscriber is taking long time to handle the notification event (Logoff).

And then a minute later

Event ID: 6006 - The winlogon notification subscriber took 300 second(s) to handle the notification event (Logoff).

Does group policy define a logoff script? Have you checked that the roaming profiles are being created and updated on the server properly? How big are the roaming profiles? – Harry Johnston Apr 14 '12 at 23:57

This happens because of certain services becoming non responding and thus taking more than the normal time. Why dont you figure out the culprit and disable it. It will make logoff faster
