Hi Janek, Not exactly a clue, but it's generally not a good idea to turn off the configuration checking on login. Take sip of your drink, get another cup of coffee, but let it do it's thing so your system works correctly... Best, Michael PS: The new(ish) TDE has a 'fixer' program that runs at login to do ???
