How do I modify the login timer for profiles?

A. When you logon and, for instance, your local profile is newer than the one stored on the profile server you have an option of which to use and a timer of 30 seconds is given. This 30 seconds can be modified as follows:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  3. From the Edit menu select New - DWORD value and enter a name of 'Show' and press Enter
  4. Double click the new value and set to between 0 and 600. Make sure you set the type to decimal. Click OK
  5. Close the registry editor
  6. This will take effect at next login
