30 Second Delay During Windows 7 Logon When Using a Solid Color Background

Solutions

[Update: Microsoft has released a fix in the Windows 7 April 2010 stability/reliability update. Link: KB980408]

Those who prefer performance & productivity over eye candy will often eliminate anything that could distract them or take up [what used to be] precious RAM. If you're one of these enthusiasts you may even choose not load a desktop wallpaper and have only a solid color as your background. No one could have guessed, though, that if you are running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, by doing so you would be reducing your performance by introducing a 30-second delay to your logon time.

 

Read more to get the details and resolution...


Microsoft has created a KB article that explains how, under the following conditions, the Welcome screen is displayed for 30 seconds during the logon process.

  • You have a computer that is running windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
  • You set a solid color as the desktop background
  • The Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service is running
  • You log on to the computer locally

This issue does not affect Remote Desktop connections

Microsoft has released a hotfix for this issue that you can download through the Microsoft Support website. I'm sure this hotfix will be included in a future update or service pack. And if you don't want to bother with a hotfix, but you still want performance, load a memory guzzling wallpaper image! So head on over to DeviantART or InterfaceLIFT and get some.

 

[Thanks to Brad C. for shooting us the deets on the login bug]
