Run logon scripts synchronously

Directs the system to wait for the logon scripts to finish running before it starts the Windows Explorer interface program and creates the desktop.

If you enable this setting, Windows Explorer does not start until the logon scripts have finished running. This setting ensures that logon script processing is complete before the user starts working, but it can delay the appearance of the desktop.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the logon scripts and Windows Explorer are not synchronized and can run simultaneously.

This setting appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. The setting set in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting set in User Configuration.
