    Hello all,

    We are in a domain enviroment with about 100 PC's on the subnet. Both our DC and BU-DC are running Server 2003. All of our workstations are XP Pro. We use Panda AntiVirus for our virus needs. The vast majority of our users all have local profiles

    We are having a problem that is going from bad to worse. Everyday day we are getting more and more machines that do not lof off or that take upwards of 30 minutes to log off. I've Googled my thumbs down to nubs trying to figure this out. I've seen the website that is out there with all kinds of stuff to try and the majoity of that either didn't work or didn't apply to our enviroment.

    Several of these PC's are brand new Dell PC's that we have been deploying since the middle of November.

    They log off just fine after we deployed them and they just gradually not working. Just today I was contacted by a user that her PC was still "on" after 2 hours. She knows that as another co-worker told her about it. This one PC I deployed just last week.

    We've updated the BIOS's on every machine, made a couple of registry hacks, and installed the free app UPH Clean Slow Shutdown.

    Needless to say this is frustrating our users and it's really frustrating us.

    Thanks for any help

    Perhaps the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service from microsoft could be of some help?
