Windows 10 1709 slow for non-admin accounts

I am using KACE SDA v5.1.84 to capture and deploy Windows 10 Enterprise build 1709. It captures and deploys no problem. The issue I am running into is regular user accounts are very slow to load programs, menus, settings, and other Microsoft-based software. I can load chrome and other third party software quickly without issue.

Has anyone else seen this before? The only way I was able to get around it was by deploying 1607. I'd rather not use a 2 year old build for our Windows 10 rollout.

  • We use Windows 10 Enterprise 1709 and have not experienced any slowness for our users. - jboling 3 years ago
  • We saw this on our 1703 builds and saw the same thing when we built the 1709 image.

    We have fixed it using the following commands to delete a few files.

    rmdir C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache /s /q
    rmdir C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache /s /q
    del C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCacheLock.dat /s /a /f /q - RyanPersaud 3 years ago
    • That worked, Ryan. Thank you so much! - ahashem 3 years ago
    • Is this a one time permanent fix or do you have to run these commands every so often? - ahashem 3 years ago
      • We run it once as part of the imaging task. Never needed to run again after. - RyanPersaud 3 years ago
    • Thanx for the info. - DaveMT 3 years ago

Could this perhaps be due to a Windows Update which was installed? It may be a good idea to verify whether or not updates are being applied to this version which are causing issues.
