Disable Resultant Set of Policy logging to improve logon performance

Resultant Set of Policy logging writes information to the WMI database for each user who logs on interactively. This causes the WMI database to grow, and can cause WMI database corruption.

Windows 2003
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy
Turn off Resultant Set of Policy logging

Windows 2008
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy
Turn off Resultant Set of Policy logging
