Computer Taking 5 Minutes To Login To Domain

less than 1 minute read


If you go to sign in on a computer on a domain and it is taking longer than usual or anything more than a minute, try these steps.

To Resolve:

  1. You want to look for network slowness first, many times this is a failing switch or break in communication between the workstation and the Domain Controller.

  2. Go ahead and login. Once in, Run => regedit.

  3. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

  4. Create a DWORD and name it verbosestatus with a Data Value = 1

  5. Exit regedit and logoff the account. Now sign back in, I have seen this work multiple times.
