To Kevindd992002, on June 16, 2012 you posted, "Any solution to this?" If you found an answer that worked for you why didn't you posted it before my post so others could try it? Your solution would not work for my wife's laptop because MSE was not installed. I hope one of our solutions help users in the future.

Millions of people use MSE and don't have this problem so I don't think it's MSE. My understanding you have one account and one desktop. I'm thinking that you might have a bunch of things starting up at boot and your desktop is fighting for resources at boot. Go to msconfig/startup and take a look. I have 3 checked; my security and blueray mouse and keyboard.

Because I forgot and am really not active here, sorry. That worked for me and other 5 computers in our family.

Googling this problem would show lots of hits pertaining to MSE as the culprit, though. I swear by MSE before until this.

then go into C:\Users and do a search on Desktop,
then delete all Desktop that are not related to the Desktop name you found above, mine was(C:\Users\Jenny\Desktop).
If you have more that one user able to log onto your PC, DO NOT delete the other users Desktops.......
Worked 100% cheers
