We use a purchased tool http://www.forensit.com/desktop-management.html. Minimizing the number of group policies being applied, local and domain. We have a minimum standard of 3 minutes from power on to application loaded with a spinning desk. With SSD we are well under that.

Our classroom and open lab computers are running Windows 7 or 10 with DeepFreeze. We are not currently using roaming profiles or SSDs. We require students to log into the computers with their domain account - which of course requires time for the local profile build. We have been testing a number of configurations to reduce our times - but would like to hear from other universities as to what methodologies have worked well for them. Thank you for the consideration.
