Windows 7: Computer screen goes blank with only curser for 5-10 seconds at log on

Computer screen goes blank with only curser for 5-10 seconds at log on

Hi all
I have run into a little bit of an annoying problem while logging onto my computer. I get to the login screen, enter my password, it then says welcome and fades out like usual. But insted of it going to my desktop it just goes blank for five to ten seconds with only the curser in the center of the screen spinning round as if it was loading somthing.
I have had this problem for a few months now and have lived with it. I know it is just my user account because I tried making a new account and it works perfectly.
Thanks to all
Ashley

Ashley, you can try booting into safe mode and see if you get the same lag. If not, boot into safe mode with networking, and see if the lag returns. It may be your NIC card or driver. A possibility anyway. A Guy

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7, in particular establishing a Clean Boot to shrug off freeloaders on system resources, and checking for newer drivers in optional Updates or via importing them from their maker's website.
