In Server 2008 R2, found under User Config, Control Panel, Personalization When I set the option to enabled and specify the default of %windir%resourcesthemesaeroaero.msstyles the aero style will load when logging on to a Windows 7 computer, however the logon time is very slow (35 seconds). Without the group policy option turned on, the logon time is quick but I get the Windows Classic look with the "Start" button instead. I don't want to have my Window 7 computer show "START" like the XP days, but the logon time is painful. Anyone have any solutions here. Thanks for your input.
