The logon process may take a long time when you try to log on to a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer

When you try to log on to a Windows Vista-based computer or a Windows Server 2008-based computer, the logon process may take a long time because of incremental network traffic.

This problem occurs when you have large number of offline files on the computer.

To determine whether you are experiencing this problem, open a network monitor tool. Then, stop and restart the Windows Search service. If you notice lots of network traffic, you are experiencing this issue.
