I have had similar problems. I was referred to the message in the
mailing list archive [1]. I have applied what was described - used
gpedit.msc -  this but I am still experiencing slow login times,
exactly 40 seconds on each workstation.

I just checked on one workstation where the user had a jpeg as his
desktop background, I mention this because there are references to a
Window7 bug about slow login and a plain desktop, and that has the
correct group policy setting and still the login time was exactly 40

I too be interested in hearing what others have to say on this.
