When I logoff it takes about 1 minute (saving your settings is running more
than 30sec).
Other user logoff normaly (about 10 sec or less)

This problem is very often introduced when the Q329170 Security Patch is

Go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs > Change/Remove Programs and see if
Q329170 is listed as an update. If it is, remove it and see if it solves the
problem. If you get a warning that other installs may stop working if you
remove it, just ignore it.

Q329170 is not very important or relevant unless you are
on a network where you have configured your Windows 2000
or Windows XP Gold systems to use SMB Signing (default
they do not use it):


Impact of vulnerability: Modify group policy.

Maximum Severity Rating: Moderate

Recommendation: Administrators whose Windows 2000 or Windows XP Gold systems
are configured to use SMB Signing should install the patch immediately.

1. Why is it taking Kerio so long to start?

I switched from ZAP to Kerio a week ago and have noticed that on our laptop
XP Home system (DELL Inspiron 8100) Kerio is very slow during
startup. It takes at least 30 seconds longer than our desktop.

If anyone has ideas about what might be causing this slow down I would
appreciate hearing them.

I uninstalled / installed Kerio and it was just as slow before any
permissions were created.
