For what it is worth, installing the VC++ 2008 x86 runtime solved it for me.

Yes, of course! I feel like an idiot, I don't know how I missed that. Thanks!

Thanks. I ran your query, and user_a does indeed have Grant_priv=='Y'. Any other thoughts on what the problem might be?

comment Utility for lowering profile creation time on domain machines
I hadn't thought about Deep Freeze being a bottleneck, I will definitely try it. For most labs, the domain controller is across the building over gigabit ethernet, so I don't think that is the issue. DNS and what not is fine. The hard drive LED is lit up the whole time during boot, so I don't think we have a network issue. Also, I found the RunOnce key for new users. It is as simple as adding the key to the default profile registry: support.microsoft.com/kb/284193

Also, the settings for software bit does exist, but I can't remember what it is called. I'll post more if I find it. I remember it most with older IE and Outlook Express, where it would create your mailbox and what not when the user account was created. I'll let you know if I can find better documentation.

I have been told it takes over 5 minutes, but I don't put too much faith into that number. I haven't specifically timed it, but to me it does seem to take somewhere between 2-3 minutes.

comment QoS switch messing with local http traffic?
You would have seen a dropout of data, but that's it.

That is impossible. Just for kicks, when it happens again, check your link lights and see if the link has been lost.

comment QoS switch messing with local http traffic?
This doesn't make much sense. Unless both ends were trying to auto-crossover and kept switching the TX and RX pins at the same time? Does this happen? And, why wouldn't the same thing happen with a crossover cable?
